At 316 East 53rd St, 212 Steakhouse is one of only a few places where you can eat actual Kobe beef in the USA. I’m sure all of us HOs know that anytime you see anything advertised as Kobe, especially the laughable hot dogs or hamburgers, run for the hills. This place serves the real thing.
The problem, for those of us not in the 1% is that you will pay through the nose for the privilege of eating the real thing. With everything a la carte, and that carte being nosebleed high, a meal here without alcohol will usually run you 2-300 pp or more if you indulge. Well, during the entire month of June, 212 Steakhouse runs an anniversary special. Basically, you get one 3 oz portion of their Kobe free when you buy another steak. We went last June and although it still ran us 300 pp, we all enjoyed our free steak.
To participate you have to be on their mailing list, so sign up on their website if you are interested. But, I posted this now because I would be willing to travel on Sunday, June 17th edit - or maybe the 24th or possibly lunch on Thursday the 28th if there is any interest in a HODown. I will check with my compatriots on the NJ board as well. All promotions are valid for as many people as you want so the more the merrier.
