Nick & Sams is selling $1200 FIVE pound Japanese Wagyu steaks

Authentic Japanese prime beef is nothing new at many Dallas steakhouses (B&B Butchers and Pappas Bros. Steakhouse routinely carry exquisite cuts, which often clock in above $25 an ounce).

But Samir Dhurandhar, the chef and co-owner of Nick & Sam’s ,has outdone them all, adding an off-menu five-pound ribeye imported from Japan’s Miyazaki prefecture.

At $1,200, it’s the most expensive steak in town, yet Brian Knoy, the  restaurant’s general manager, says he can’t keep enough on hand to meet demand.

If you’ve ever doubted that Dallas is the king of steakhouse cities, this should make it clear.
