With an increasingly health-crazed society and documentaries like “Food, Inc.” and “What the Health,” a slab of red meat is no longer idolized the way it used to be. However, that’s not to imply that America’s top steakhouses are hurting.
A steak at one of the country’s distinguished steakhouses can cost as little as $40 or $50 to as much as $350 — and that’s for one person! It’s certainly a challenge to determine which of the myriad of steakhouses in the country is truly the most expensive, but some establishments offer a slew of extremely pricey entrées. Japanese Wagyu beef in particular can be triple what an indulging customer may expect to pay for just one steak. And that is before considering appetizers, sides, and desserts, which can add another $50 or more to the check for each person.
The team at 24/7 Wall St. crunched the numbers of menu items from the country’s priciest steakhouses and calculated just how much an average meal would cost for one person.
