Chef Samir Dhurandhar intros $200 prime steak at Nick & Sam’s to honor Dirk Nowitzki
No one does over-the-top like Samir Dhurandhar. The chef and co-owner of Dallas’ Nick & Sam’s Steakhouse is already known for serving America’s top selection of super-prime Japanese beef (Kobe, Ohmi, Miyazaki, Hokkaido Snow Beef, among others). Now he’s introduced a prime steak cut and aged just for Nick & Sam’s that honors Dallas Maverick player Dirk Nowitzki.
The bone-in prime filet weighs in at 41 ounces — to match Nowitzki’s jersey number — and was dry-aged for 41 days. The steak is served on a specially designed Nowiitzki plate and was introduced to the menu last night to a crowd that included Nowitzki, players Devin Harris, Harrison Barnes, JJ Barea and Dwight Powell, and coaches Rick Carlisle, Al Whitley, Dionne Calhoun, Casey Smith and Jamal Mosely. Of course, Michael Finley, Tony Romo and Nick & Sam’s co-owner Phil Romano were also there.
“I want to honor Dirk,” Dhurandhar told me. “It’s a small way of giving back to him for all he’s done for our community and for our city.”
The $200 steak is on the Nick & Sam’s menu now.
