You’ll probably need to hit blackjack before dining at what has bee rated the most expensive restaurant in Massachusetts. Rare, the steakhouse inside Encore Boston Harbor in Everett, was listed as the priciest place to dine by the Daily Meal.

The Chesapeake crab cakes starters will run you $22. You you can spend 10 times that on 4 ounces of A5 Kobe steak — that’s right, $220 for the piece of meat. Most non-steak main dishes average over $40.

“In this elegant dining room with stunning views overlooking the Harborwalk and Mystic River, Executive Chef James Ash redefines the steakhouse experience with creative classics and exceptional cuts,” Rare’s website says. “Rare features the most uniquely curated steak program in New England, including exclusive Japanese cuts from Kobe and the Kagoshima prefecture, as well as the best of domestic beef from Snake River Farms, Idaho and our partners at La Frieda Meats.”

The Daily Meal excluded big chain steakhouses “in the interest of keeping it local.”
