The Madison Avenue!

Recommended Posts

I place this question here because all of you KK owners will cooking on your KK, so here's the question do you feel this is a fair price for this package from Lobel's?

The Madison Avenue.jpg

The price for the combo package is $149.95 and it's USDA PRIME, The price for Nature Prime is $169.95 and the price for American Wagyu is $348.95!

The USDA Prime Madison Avenue package includes:

  • 2 (5 oz.) USDA Prime Filet Mignon
  • 1 (10 oz.) Aged Boneless Strip Steak
  • 1 (22 oz.) Aged Porterhouse Steak
  • They also have what is called the Weekender and consists of the same cuts of meat but more portions and the meat is slightly larger!

I can get a prime strip loin or ribeye primal at Costco for less than $10/lb, butcher and dry age my own. So in short...NO!

Do the math - that weekender package is only 5.25 lbs of meat for $310 - that's $59/lb. :eek:

Even the smaller one is no bargain either - 2 5/8 lbs for $150 or $57/lb. 

At those prices, that box of meat better be delivered by a chef who cooks it for you!

Total weight of 2 lb, 10 oz for $150 = $57.00/lb plus shipping. I can do a lot better than that for dry-aged beef from my local Whole Foods. Their dry-aged tenderloin runs about 25.99/lb if i remember.

You can get 8 lb, 8 oz. of Aukushi/Angus Wagyu for $365 from Heritage Foods, that's $43/lb for some of the finest beef you'll ever put in your mouth: Steak Lovers Package

Plus shipping, of course. ;)

Just thinking about a gift to my Dad without going and purchasing and then shipping it to him. That package of meat would give him and his girlfriend about 4 great meals. If I add up the cost of going to Whole Foods and purchasing then having UPS box and ship my costs would be the same. The Madison Avenue package is the one I'm looking at getting for him.

Price aside, a 5 oz filet will be tiny. Not easy to cook anything other than medium well or well done on something that small.

If it's a gift the price depends on how much enjoyment the receiver will get out of it. For my Dad it wouldn't be too expensive...a gift for myself NO WAY! I agree with everyone else, too pricy. Have you looked at Snake River Farms?

Yes, but being here in NY I tend to try to buy as local as possible! As you said for my Dad not to expensive!!

I understand the desire to support local stores/vendors but not at the cost of being totally ripped off. If they want people to support them locally they need to be at least a little competitive on the price.

If you can afford it and your dad will like the gift, go for it.  No doubt that meat will be out of this world.

For your own home use you can find a local butcher with that quality meat for a better price.
