Here’s the Beef!

SW SteakhouseJeff Green

Japanese Kobe beef is among the most coveted and misrepresented items in the fine-dining world. Real Food/Fake Food author Larry Olmsted and executive chef David Walzog will let you sample real Kobe next to its various pretenders to the beefy throne at a five-course Kobe vs. Faux-be Dinner on November 9 at SW Steakhouse, one of only nine restaurants in the U.S. authorized to serve the real deal. Georges Daou of California’s Daou Vineyards will select and pour the evening’s vinous pairings. $425, 6 p.m., in Wynn,
