Come June, Mu Ramen Plans to Serve Some of the Oldest Wagyu in the City

Joshua Smookler just started aging a giant hunk of beef that won't be ready until the summer.

New York is home to some very old steaks. Eleven Madison Park ages its rib eye for 140 days and Osteria Morini offers a 125-day-old rib eye as a weekly special. Mu Ramen — Long Island City's hottest new rameny-ya — is planning to outdo both of them. Chef Joshua Smookler is dry aging a big old hunk of wagyu for 165 days. That means it will be ready on June 5. No word yet on how it will be served. Perhaps it will portioned out into very small pieces and served over ramen, or perhaps it's being saved for some sort of special occasion. Who knows. In the meantime, take a long look at that steak, and mark June 5 on the calendar.
