Bistecca alla Fiorentina

“For my last recipe for Side Dish, I thought of the goodness of a nice piece of meat,” says Alberto Leandri, executive chef of Grissini in Englewood Cliffs. “This recipe is famous in Florence, but we use also it in Venice. It is very simple to make. All you need is a grill and great quality meat. In the restaurant I only use prime, 21-day dry-aged beef at least 1 and 3/4 inches thick.”
