When I was in LA, I had a special opportunity to eat with Jeffrey and Austin at a special event by Wagyu Mafia, at Spago Restaurant in Beverly Hills.
But before we went to the event to eat a 12 course wagyu Japanese beef meal, we first stopped off at chi SPACCA, an Italian restaurant to have their cheesy focaccia. It was cooked right in front of us, and it was so fresh and incredibly good. The golden cooked dough and the cheese in the center made it fantastic.
Spago - We continued on to Spago to attend the Wagyu Mafia event. I had an opportunity to go back into the kitchen to see the chefs preparing the meal, and get a few samples directly from the chefs. The mini wagyu beef sliders were incredible, but the ice cream cone raw wagyu tartare was the winner.
Here are all the Wagyu Mafia beef courses we had for our meal at Spago:
