2. Dry-aged long bone-in Kobe rib eye steak at Killen's Steakhouse, $98
There are tomahawk steaks, and then there is the dry-aged long bone-in Kobe beef rib eye from Killen's steakhouse. Weighing from 32 to 36 ounces, this Fred Flintstone-style heavyweight contender is fantastically proportioned to satisfy your wildest steak dreams. Though it sounds big enough for two to share, the succulent, flavorful meat is so tender and richly flavored that you'll want to hoard it for yourself.
1. White Alba truffle soufflé at Tony's, $59.
Splurge on the white alba truffle soufflé (created this year for white truffle season), and you just might die a happy food death. I speak from experience: I got one for my birthday, and it was without a doubt the best thing I put in my mouth all year. Light and fluffy, every bite of the incredibly savory soufflé is accompanied by the true scent and flavor of freshly shaved white Alba truffle. Words do not do it justice: It's something you should experience at least once in your life. Absolutely. Totally. Divine.
