Imagine it: Japanese wagyu, the most coveted beef in the world, offered as a sumptuous six-course tasting menu. Would you care to indulge? Introducing Houston’s first and only wagyu omakase: six over-the-top custom chef-created courses that begin and end with certified wagyu beef from Japan. Offered at the Michelin Guide-recommended Roka Akor’s River Oaks location, the extravagant meal is an ever-changing smorgasbord of meaty delights. Expect decadent dishes such as wagyu tataki topped with freshly shaved truffle; wagyu beef tartare with Osetra caviar; and nigiri sushi made from certified wagyu from Miyazaki, Kyosho Island, Shiga and Hokkaido prefectures. The best is saved for last—certified Kobe steak from Tajima, grilled over Japanese bincho tan coals so that it literally melts in your mouth. Five-day advance reservation required, $250 per person, 2929 Weslayan St., 713.622.1777,
