Savor the Best

Navigating the Premium Cuts and Grades of Beef at Lago

For a steak enthusiast, few things rival the satisfaction of savoring a perfectly-cooked piece of premium beef. At Lago , we pride ourselves on offering not only the finest cuts but also an enriched understanding of what you're indulging in. Delve with us into the world of beef cuts and their grades.

Wagyu: A Luxurious Indulgence
Hailing from Japan, Wagyu — translating to “Japanese cow” — reigns supreme with its famed marbling and sumptuous texture. This is not merely a steak; it’s a culinary journey, flavored with rich history and meticulous cattle raising practices. This Beef will be a Staple on Lago Menu. 

Prime: The Epitome of American Excellence
USDA Prime sits proudly in the top 2% of all beef in the U.S. Abundant marbling is its hallmark, ensuring a steak that bursts with juiciness and robust flavor. At Lago , our Prime cuts undergo a precise aging process, promising a bite that resonates with culinary perfection.

Angus: Consistency Meets Quality
Originating from Scotland, Angus beef, available as Black and Red Angus, is celebrated for its consistent marbling, tenderness, and delightful flavor profile. When you opt for an Angus steak here, you're choosing a lineage of excellence.

Understanding Beef Grades
Beyond the famous cuts, it's essential to recognize the grading system, which provides insights into the quality and characteristics of the beef:

USDA Prime: As mentioned, this is the crème de la crème, offering extensive marbling.

USDA Choice: A high-quality beef grade, Choice boasts less marbling than Prime but is incredibly tender, juicy, and flavorful. Though not our primary offering, it's a popular choice in many establishments.

USDA Select: Leaner than both Prime and Choice, Select has minimal marbling. While we do not serve Select grade at 9 Prime , it's essential to appreciate the spectrum of beef grades to truly value the premium offerings on our menu.

Why 9 Prime Stands Apart
It starts with our unwavering commitment to quality. Every steak on our menu has a backstory, from the dedicated ranchers who raise the cattle to our seasoned chefs who masterfully bring out the innate flavors of each cut. Our passion shines through in every facet, from sourcing to serving.

Steak transcends the definition of a dish; it's a testament to the art of culinary perfection. At Lago , we champion the vast world of beef cuts and grades, from the opulent Wagyu to the revered USDA Prime, and even acknowledging the broader grades that define the industry. Embark on this flavorful journey with us and deepen your steak appreciation.
