Most Luxurious Steakhouses
Steak is a meat lover’s dream come true. It brings together the best of both worlds: grilling and braising. In other words, you get all the flavour of a beautifully charred steak combined with the tenderness of a slowly braised piece of meat. Steaks are expensive - whether you buy them at the grocery store or at a restaurant.

It serves up a 12-ounce Kobe strip steak Big Apple style at $350 - the restaurant serves up to 25 of these steaks a night.

3. Aragawa, Tokyo
Since its establishment in 1967, Aragawa has served cuisine rich in the bounties of nature, from its signature dish, the carefully selected and charcoal-broiled Sanda Beefsteak, to the single whole salmon the restaurant smokes them fresh every week. The Nishijin silk tapestries, the cherry-wood tables and chairs have been unchanged since Aragawa opened its doors, and the Swedish chandeliers provide a classic atmosphere, far from the madding crowd, where you can forget the cares of the day and dine in timeless comfort.

4. Renga-Tei Steak Restaurant in Kobe, Japan

This provides for an especially warm and cozy atmosphere. Accompanied by Scottish salmon, seasoned salad and including dessert, the "Select Special Filet Course" goes for a warm and cozy $206.
