Kobe beef on offer in NYC

Almost certainly NOT real Kobe beef. If you think you ate Kobe beef in the US before 2012, you can be certain you got scammed (unless someone smuggled it for you in a suitcase). In the States, you can eat a real Kobe steak at only a few restaurants, such as one at the Wynn resort in Las Vegas or 212 Steakhouse on East Fifty-Third Street in New York. Most of the other “Kobe” is not the real thing

In their stalls, awaiting massage and beer. It's a myth that in Japan Kobe beef cattle receive massages and beer. According to the official website of the Kobe Beef Marketing & Distribution Promotion Association: “There have been almost no cases of cows being raised on beer,” and “massage itself neither softens meat nor increases the amount of marbling.”
