Morimoto May Guest Chef At Yankee Stadium, But Stephen Starr Makes Sure He Supports The Phillies With A Special Edition Gourmet Cheesesteak

So Morimoto may have been a guest chef at the new Yankee Stadium earlier this season, but Stephen Starr is making sure his namesake restaurant in Philadelphia is staunchly supportive of the Philadelphia Phillies. And rightfully so.

Morimoto Philadelphia now offers a special gourmet Kobe Beef Cheesesteak that sounds reminiscent of the now-disappeared $100 cheesesteak at Barclay Prime.

It's a slightly less extravagant version, being without foie gras or lobster. But that means at $35, it might actually be a reasonable price. (If you really like Kobe beef.)

Regardless, good to see Starr staying true to the home team.
