Father's Day Features: treat yer pops

Wagyu Boneless Ribeye              available as 12oz steaks, about $35 each ($46.50/lb)

intensely marbled with supreme tenderness and flavor; raised all-naturally, humanely, drug-free, stress-free at Joseph Decuis in Roanoke, Indiana

Wagyu has only been available in the United States since the mid-1970s and authentic Wagyu remains a scarce commodity in America. While less than two percent of all beef raised in the United States meets the USDA quality of “Prime,” virtually 100% of Wagyu raised on the Joseph Decuis farm exceeds "Prime."

To produce this superior beef in an all-natural, drug-free manner, it takes two to three times longer to raise and finish Wagyu as compared to commercial cattle. Time and love are necessary for raising world-class Wagyu. While the consumer may pay more, authentic Wagyu raised naturally and humanely is the choice of beef connoisseurs.

Wagyu Bavette                               
available whole, about 1lb each, $19.50/lb

As the "butcher's best kept secret" steak, the bavette is the flap steak cut from under the flank. With delicious flavor, it delivers big bang for your buck when cooked on high, dry heat.

El Enimigo 2012                               
$25.75 (regularly $30!)
93pts and "Best of Year,” Wine Enthusiast           
Mendoza, Argentina      89% Malbec + 6% Cabernet Franc + 5% Petit Verdot

Alejandro Vigil’s El Enemigo wines are worth jumping on. This is typically smoky and dark up front, with molasses, marzipan, and blackberry aromas. The palate clamps down with tannic grip, while flavors of oak, blackberry, tobacco, vanilla and spices end briary and with subtlety, which is what makes this powerful wine so good. An ideal pairing for grilled and well-marbled steaks.

YOLO Burgers                                   available in 8oz patties, about $20 each ($40/lb)

2oz seasoned foie gras cradled within Fischer Farms dry-aged black angus ground beef, seasoned with black truffle salt and red wine
