$1,000 Steak Served Up in a Box


Got an extra $1,000 laying around? It might be time to treat yourself to a $1,000 steak.

Papi Steak is a “clubstaurant” in South Beach, Florida. The venue has the beast of a dish on its menu for those looking to get more of an experience than a meal. For $1,000, you’re treated to a 55-ounce, purebred, Australian-raised Japanese Wagyu first presented tableside raw.

If that wasn’t enough, the entire waitstaff will then march over to your table with sparklers, noisemakers, flashing lights and hype music blaring. Think again about enjoying a low-key night out.

White-gloved servers will brand the steak, which often includes tons of drama and shouting. The Wagyu is grilled and served with multiple dipping sauces, including truffle butter, chimichurri, Béarnaise and a secret signature recipe similar to spicy mayonnaise.

“I want to provide an experience to our guests that’s loosely modeled off of European summertime nightlife. I love everything lavish, over-the-top and hedonistic. I want to see and bring more of this vibe into the U.S., so my job here is to curate the guest experience to the full extent,” owner David “Papi” Einhorn said.

Don’t worry, this $1,000 steak can feed about four people, making it easy for a group to split the meal for those looking to save a bit of dough.
