3-Star Michelin Restaurant Alters Menu After Kobe Beef Was Actually Cheaper Meat
Air Date: 04/28/16
A restaurant with three Michelin stars has altered its menu after our investigation found its Kobe beef was actually a less expensive meat. Le Bernardin, listed a meal with Kobe beef on its menu for a whopping $110. But when we later asked the manager to see the restaurant's Kobe beef certification, he was stumped. The owner later called to say they made a mistake and the restaurant immediately changed its menu from Kobe beef to Japanese Wagyu, a less expensive Japanese beef.
