Chianina Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Chianina Steakhouse is named after the Italian breed of cattle originally used for bistecca alla fiorentina. This upscale boutique steakhouse is a venture of Michael's Restaurant Group, which operates Michael's on Naples Ristorante two blocks away as well as two Michael's Pizzeria locations. Comfortable seating at the bar greets guests for creative cocktails, a simplified bar menu or full menu should they choose. The dining room is dim, but targeted lighting ensures that the tables and booths are not in shadow. Recording studio soundproofing materials on the walls and ceiling afford diners some peace and quiet. (Request the corner alcove booth for extra privacy.) Thoughtful touches like these, along with effective service, contribute to a pleasant experience. Chef David Coleman makes an effort to source ingredients, such as fairy tale eggplant, from Farm Lot 59, an organic farm in nearby Signal Hill. Starters include crispy pork belly, beef carpaccio, Hudson Valley foie gras, and a variety of oysters. The restaurant teamed up with a domestic rancher to raise its own Chianina herd, which provides an exclusive source for this high-quality beef. (These steaks are listed on a separate menu, but be aware that availability can vary.) In addition, Piedmontese and Prime steaks are offered with various sauces. The bone-in rib-eye is a particularly fine choice; pair it with the Yukon gratin and mushrooms with thyme. Don't miss out on the banana pudding with macadamia nut crumble. General manager Massimo Aronne keeps a watchful eye over the bar program and wine list, which has a "Wine-O-Matic" section featuring several selections available in four- or six-ounce servings.
