A Taste of Zeppelin’s American Wagyu Tartare

Warning: Consuming raw or undercooked meats may increase your risk of consuming more raw or undercooked meats—especially in the case of this wagyu tartare at Zeppelin. It may look a tad abstract at first blush, but Chef Vince Giancarlo constructs this dish with intentionality: There is, I’m sure, a correct way to consume it.

My best effort: Grab a root veggie chip of your choice (taro or sweet potato), load it up with the rich beef, and garnish that with some dollops of egg custard and roasted tomato relish. Patiently try all this alone first, and then break that black truffle yolk on top of it. When finished, you’ll probably need to order another for the table. I mean, you were warned.
