A new, high-end Japanese spot just debuted Friday in Los Gatos called Katsu, and they're already touting the ultimate in high-roller menu items: The Decadence Staircase (pictured). As the Scoop reports, it's a literal staircase of dishes delivered to your table featuring the finest of caviars, Japanese Wagyu shabu shabu, and spiny lobster sashimi topped with gold leaf, and it will run you an average of $1,200. There's also a nine-course omakase menu for $295 from 20-year Nobu vet Katsuhiko Hanamure, and a Wagyu sampler for $400. So, suffice it to say they're giving The Sea by Alexander's Steakhouse a run for their money in the bougie Peninsula seafood house realm. See the full menu here. [Scoop]
