Unlike anything I have seen this side of Florence, Italy, One10 Modern Italian Steakhouse delivers a new twist on some Old World classics. Upon entering the premises you will be overwhelmed with its dramatic contemporary 14,000 square foot space. The M BAR, unique to One10 caters to the sophisticated diner that is passionate about their mozzarella. It’s an experience where patrons relax with a cocktail while they watch an artisan staff create customized collections of cured meats, cheeses and vegetables. A wonderful concept for a light dinner or quick bite in a casual setting.
We began our dining journey with some apps; Arancini Rice Balls; The epitome of southern Italian street food was delightful. Five mini risotto balls, fried till golden brown, placed on top of a gorgonzola sauce. Very crispy, yet moist within was excellent.
The Wedge; Baby garden heart iceberg, sieved egg yolk, bacon lardons, pickled onion, olive oil cured heirloom tomato in a gorgonzola dressing. Presented as two mini wedges was slightly more delicate than the old-school steakhouse kind were just enough for two.
Ricotta al Tartufo; A mound of ricotta cheese, dressed with marcona almonds, wild flower honey and shaved truffle. Served with crostini had the perfect balance of savory and sweet.
Before the main course, I asked our server if we could share a bowl of Cacio e Pepe. Though not on the menu, I was thrilled that the chef was able to provide us with an appetizer size portion. A spaghetti pasta with Pecorino Romano cheese and black pepper, so simple, yet still an Old World traditional favorite.
Porterhouse Fiorentina; Inspired by the Florence Tuscany region, One10 stays true to its form. Thick-cut, 45 day dry-aged Porterhouse steak for 2, at what appeared appeared to be at around 40 oz. was beautifully presented sliced with a charred exterior. From the first bite to the last was tender and juicy, a perfect medium rare.
Sides included; Roasted Mushrooms in a garlic herb butter sauce and a creamed spinach that was surprisingly light matched perfectly.
For the finale, an Italian Rainbow Cookie Cake was on special this evening. A moist almond rainbow sponge cake with raspberry drizzle, topped with a generous cap of cannoli cream, then garnished with sliced strawberries was sensational. Cappuccino in hand, made for a perfect ending to a wonderful dining experience.
One10 Modern Italian Steakhouse opened early January 2020. What followed suit just two months later, came one of the most challenging periods in the history of the hospitality industry.
Here we are, over 3 1/2 years since the pandemic and One10 Modern Italian Steakhouse is bustling. A tribute to the stellar reputation and strength of an industry legend, Anthony Scotto.
