When diners are hungry for top-quality steak, they immediately think of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. Not only does the restaurant serve amazing steaks, but its menu also is well rounded with fresh seafood, scrumptious sides and desserts that guests can’t resist.
With numerous locations around the world, Wolfgang’s opened in Waikiki at Royal Hawaiian Center in 2009. It’s the ideal location to spoil Dad with a Father’s Day Special for the upcoming holiday. Priced at $124.95, guests will receive a 32-ounce Tomahawk Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach and a glass of perfectly paired wine.
“The Tomahawk Steak is an on-the-bone ribeye steak, cut from the fore-rib with the entire rib bone left in,” explains PR and marketing director Mona Wood-Sword. “The long bone is French-trimmed, leaving an amazing presentation. Because it is a bone-in ribeye, it has quite a large amount of inter-muscular fat, which means it is extra delicious because of the flavors released from both the huge bone, and inter-muscular fat during cooking.”
Like all steaks at Wolfgang’s, the Tomahawk is cut from top-quality USDA Prime beef. “It’s the absolute best you can get, but we don’t stop there,” says Wood-Sword. At Wolfgang’s, steaks are dry aged in house for 28 days for superior marbling, texture and flavor. “Then, we trim up to 30 percent of it off due to the aging process to reveal the most superb aged beef underneath. It is then cut to size by our in-house butcher and cooked to perfection in our special 1,600-degree broiler, which leaves a perfectly caramelized crust,” she adds.
Another juicy steak diners must try is the Taste of New York. For $39.95, patrons receive a 12-ounce USDA Prime and dry-aged New York sirloin along with Mashed Potatoes, Creamed Spinach and a sample slice of Junior’s world-famous cheesecake. This popular deal is available during Wolfgang’s all-day happy hour, from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the bar area only.
Dinner is available all day, and on the weekend, brunch is served from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
