Conspicuous Consumption

A $180.00 steak sandwich speaks for itself (or should for that kind of $$$!).

At Don Wagyu, a new sandwich shop in the financial district, a five-ounce piece of steak, imported from Japan, can cost as much as a hundred and eighty dollars.

But hey, it’s served in a small wooden box, tied up with a ribbon and stamped with the establishment’s logo, the head of a louche-looking steer with a cigarette dangling from its mouth.
