Lobels of New York has been serving the community for almost 50 years. The company is family-owned and produces consistently high-quality meats to a variety of dedicated customers, some of whom are celebrities and upper-level businessmen. Recently, the company launched a website meant to increase efficiency and allow customers to receive their meats quickly and easily. Through the online ordering system, customers can easily choose from all of Lobel’s meats to place an order.
American Wagyu beef is similar to Japanese Kobe beef. Wagyu cattle produce specifically marbled meat that is some of the highest quality available.
Wagyu are of the same stock of cattle as those that produce Kobe beef, and produce the only type of beef comparable to Kobe.
Lobels Wagyu beef has a marbling rating of about 9/12, compared to the 12 rating of the highest quality Japanese Kobe.
Lobels also offers specialty Piedmontese Prime beef. The Piedmontese beef is selected from a special breed of cattle raised in the Northern Rocky Mountains. The breed originated in Italy before it started being bred in the United States about 30 years ago.
The cattle are raised on a wholly vegetarian diet and are completely free of any added hormones or antibiotics. Piedmontese cattle are known for their heavier stature, which provides higher quality hind- and forequarter-cuts. They are also known for their unique doubled musculature, which lends this beef a rich and tender flavor.

My reviews are based on my entire customer experience. A "thumbs up" means I found enough value in the product to say I would order it again, and a "thumbs down" could mean it was a good product, but I would not buy it again at the price I paid for it. This is how I believe I can show you the best value for your money.
