The Sound of 2,000 Samurai Swords Crashing to the Ground

There’s nothing I enjoy more than a Bruni Steakhouse Smackdown (password required). In case you haven’t made it through the Times today, Bruni gave Jeffrey Chodorow’s Kobe Club a deadly “Satisfactory,” finding that “it presents too many insipid or insulting dishes at prices that draw blood from anyone without a trust fund or an expense account.” Bruni correctly reasons that if you’re going to charge hundreds of dollars for beef and go through the foolishness of hanging 2,000 samurai swords from the ceiling, the food better be outstanding. It wasn’t, thus the dreaded “Satisfactory” (why mince words, change it to Sucks!)

While we’re on the subject of Kobe beef, anyone else out there dream of being reincarnated as a Wagyu cow ? Daily massages and ample feedings of beer to fatten up? Yes please.

Well, I was planning on coming back as Max or Spike, since they are spoiled pet. But now I want to be a cow! Hawtsauce! Massages & beer? Hell yeah!

Yah, I don't wish the "S" word on anybody, I don't care what you're charging! I haven't read a lot about the latest in steak house innovation but now curiosity's gettin' the better of me. Off to do some research.
