Sirloin Strip Steak With Double-Roasted Potatoes @ Ristorante Del Porto
This is the best Italian restaurant in the area, with an adventuresome, brilliantly turned out menu. So it doesn’t sound quite right to say that the best entree here is a New York strip steak. But the style of both the steak and everything else here is decidedly Tuscan. And in Tuscany, they eat steaks with gusto. Great ones, at that. That spirit is very much in evidence here.
