Alexander's Steakhouse is a high-end restaurant that specializes in beef, both classic U.S.D.A. offerings like Black Angus steak, Omaha steak and prime rib, as well as A5 Wagyu imported from Japan. The Wagyu is sold in three-ounce portion increments, sourced from Miyazaki, Hokkaido and other Japanese farms, with prices starting at $115 per portion. Like any good steakhouse, there are decadent sauces (try the béarnaise) and side dishes (which are only meant to feed one person). The real winner here actually isn't the steak, however, it's the hamachi shots. Those delicately layered bites combine raw yellowtail, avocado, ponzu, Fresno chili and more, melding into an explosion of distinct flavors as you throw back the shot glass. Be careful, however, as there's a lot in each little glass. Another unexpected winner is the organic greens salad, where gushy burrata and creamy avocado all meld with a yuzu dressing.
