Lobel’s of New York
Located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, one of New York’s oldest butcher shops is now in the hands of its fifth generation. It procures only prime beef, a designation given to less than 2 percent of the market, before dry aging the cuts for four to six weeks. Orders are then shipped in a cooler, unfrozen. [Filet mignon starts at about $5 per ounce; lobels.com]
What else you can get: The most popular steak in the form of, arguably, the most popular American food: an $11, prime filet mignon hamburger patty.
