Dry-aged steaks are
flavorful and tender
Dry-aged steaks are known for having a richer flavor and more tender texture than their fresh-cut counterparts. Our in-house dry-aged steaks are no exception. The dry-aging process pulls moisture from the meat, concentrating the flavor in much the same way as reducing a stock to a demi-glaze does. About 75% of meat is water; as it evaporates, the natural beef flavor intensifies. Dry-aging beef also transforms its texture. The process breaks down some of the proteins in the meat, allowing the teeth to more easily penetrate the piece.
A Primer on Wagyu Beef
Wagyu beef, quite simply, is beef that comes from a Wagyu cow. The word “wagyu” means “Japanese cow.” But not every Japanese cow is a Wagyu cow. It is a specific breed of Japanese cow with a specific genetic composition. These genes are what causes the Wagyu cow to metabolize fat within its muscle, creating the dense marbling of fat on the inside of the muscle tissue that distinguishes true Wagyu beef from other products. The result has been described as “a rich, luscious cut of beef that practically dissolves once it hits your tongue.”
On a menu in a fine dining restaurant, you may see an A4 or A5 rating alongside the beef, with A5 representing the most premium level of wagyu. Two components contribute to the rating — a yield rating of “A” or “B” that indicates how much meat the cow yields, a matter of more importance to the purveyor than the diner, and a Beef Marbling Standard (BMS) rating. The BMS is a scale of one to 12 that takes into consideration both the amount and quality of the marbling. To carry an A5 rating, the beef must have a BMS of 8 to 12. An A4 rating means a BMS of 6 to 8.
Our sources for Japanese Wagyu, American Wagyu, Australian Wagyu
We source our 100% Full Blood Wagyu beef from Lone Mountain Wagyu, a family-owned ranch in Golden, New Mexico dedicated to raising 100% Wagyu cattle that is never crossbred. Each animal is DNA-certified to prove its direct lineage to its Japanese heritage. The ranch is committed to raising their cattle in the most humane way possible while operating the facility in a sustainable manner.
There are strains of beef marketed as American Wagyu, which is a crossbred product, most often between angus and wagyu. It will still be highly marbled and intensely flavored but lacks the sweet umami flavor of Japanese wagyu.
We bring you award-winning Australian Wagyu from Carrarra640, where each F1 or F2 wagyu cow is descended from a full-blood wagyu sire registered with the Australian Wagyu Association (AWA) and a British dam or wagyu cross dam.
What is Kobe Beef?
Kobe is a brand of wagyu beef, like Nike is a brand of shoe. To be labeled Kobe beef, the meat must originate in Kobe, Japan. All the parties who have a hand in bringing the beef to your table must be licensed by The Kobe Beef Association. Finally, the beef must be rated A4 or A5. Our Kobe beef comes from award-winning Miyazakigyu, the top brand of Japanese Wagyu. To qualify as Miyazakigyu, these Japanese Black Cattle must be born and raised in Miyazaki Prefecture and graded A4 and above.
So no matter which wagyu you choose, you can be certain of enjoying the world’s finest beef, available right here at your Fort Lauderdale gourmet butcher.

French for “fatty liver,” foie gras is considered a great delicacy
worldwide. With its silky texture and sweet, nutty finish, it stands

blended with water or wine and baked into a mousse. Whipping
black truffles into the creamy mousse is a decadent method of
combining two of the world’s most glamorous epicurean
treasures. Try foie gras ice cream for a delectable dessert!
