"It's like prosciutto," Chef de Cuisine Asi Maman says of the long-aged steak special he gets from Pat LaFrieda. It's served in small portions because the flavor is so intense, and when it drops on the menu, it sells out within the hour. Here's how it gets made. More

Steakcraft: Michael White's Steaks at Marea, Ai Fiori, and Osteria Morini

Steakcraft Nick Solares 5 comments

While chef Michael White is best know for his rococo interpretations of Italian cuisine, he is at heart a corn-fed Midwestern kid with a love of corn-fed American beef. This is evident at three of his Manhattan restaurants: Marea, Ai Fiori, and Osteria Morini. At each he serves one of the crown jewels of the butchers meat locker—the dry aged strip loin. And just as the respective restaurants offer different glimpses of the thematic elements that inspire them, so to is the handling of the same cut, leading to three very different, yet equally compelling results.

Daily Scoop: Apricot Gelato at Osteria Morini

Erin Zimmer 1 comment

This is one of the most apricot-intense experiences you can have next to actually eating an apricot. Spooning up a bite of this gelato is like biting into a fuzzy-skinned, peak-ripe apricot. Made with fresh apricots and some lemon juice, it tastes of pure fruit. All that juicy nectar with a faint tartness and a golden-orangey sweetness, but not too sweet. More

13 Great Bites at Meatball Madness

With our discerning meatball palates on high alert, we wove our way through the crowd of food-lovers and Food Network lovers alike (Giada De Laurentiis was the evening's host, and Guy Fieri made an appearance), sampling all sorts of meat- (and meatless!) balls.

Osteria Morini: Michael White For The People

The Serious Eats Team 21 comments

A one-question Italian food pop quiz: What's the difference between an osteria, a trattoria, and a ristorante? The answer can be found at the end of this review. But we've found ourselves unable to care at Osteria Morini, the new restaurant of prodigiously talented Italian chef-restaurateur Michael White (he of the unfortunate, decidedly un-Italian, white bread-y surname).
