The hottest buy on Wall Street? A US$185 wagyu steak sandwich

Don Wagyu, the first restaurant in New York devoted solely to wagyu beef sandwiches, is on South Williams Street in Manhattan’s Financial District, a five-minute walk from the New York Stock Exchange.

It opened on Tuesday, with three sandwiches (or “sandos”) on offer in the 1,000 square foot space. Each is made from a different prized wagyu beef; the cheapest, made with from a hybrid of Japanese and American cows, Washugyu, costs about US$25. On the other end of the spectrum is the A5 Ozaki, which is sourced from a single farm in Japan: that sandwich costs around US$185.

Don Wagyu is aiming to sell about 200 sandwiches a day, or until they run out. Eventually there will also be delivery via Caviar.

Can’t you just see this place in ‘Billions’? It’s a place that screams for placement in the HBO hit, Billions.

Chef Samuel Clonts has been serving the sando, in which the beef is breaded and flash fried to create a crunchy exterior and creamy, soft heart, as part of the 10-course US$200 tasting menu at the elite izakaya Uchu. He and owner Derek Feldman wanted to find a bigger platform to spotlight it.
