I'd drive 7 hours round trip before paying $50+ per pound for dry aged prime. At the $25 we've been paying, it costs us less than half what we'd be paying to eat in a restaurant. To my taste frozen beef, like that from Omaha, is not quite as succulent as fresh dry aged. Consequently we only have this delicacy for two or three days after we make our food shopping safari every 4 weeks. Working near NYC's Chelsea meat packing district in the 1960's got me interested in prime beef.

Some of the foodstuffs available in LI's Hamptons compensates for the heavy traffic and hoity toities.
