Wednesday, February 28: Mozzarella Heaven at Ironside Pizza
If you’ve had a meal at Ironside Pizza before, then you surely know how much care the restaurant puts into every single ingredient they serve. For the Upper East Side pizzeria, Italian food means healthy and wholesome, and that journey starts with choosing only the purest ingredients, local and, in some cases, imported from the motherland. One of those ingredients that Ironside takes pride in is their fresh mozzarella, which might be some of the best mozz we’ve ever had. Luckily, the mozzarella options on the menu are anything but scarce, whether it’s caprese panini brimming with fresh tomatoes, mozzarella ovaline, and basil or the eggplant parmigiana, made with but, of course, nothing but the best mozzarella in town. Rest assured, there’s also a wide array of wood-fired pizzas like the Regina pizza bianca, made with mozzarella fior di latte, prosciutto di parma, cherry tomatoes, and baby arugula, allowing for the fresh cheese to truly shine.
Thursday, February 29: Treat Yourself at RED South Beach
Hey, February 29 only comes around once every four years, right? That means it’s time to treat yourself! What’s the first place that comes to mind? We know just the spot—RED South Beach, one of America’s best steakhouses. No smoke and mirrors here, but trust us when we say you’ll be treated like royalty. Chef Peter Vauthy puts in the utmost care to prepare cuts of steak like you won’t believe. If you’ve already checked out our latest interview with Chef Vauthy, then you probably already know the secret—a proper ribeye is his favorite cut. And the c.a.b. prime ribeye at RED is stupendously luscious. To balance out such a rich steak, make sure to order some of the steakhouse’s famed sides, like the green beans with pancetta and pine nuts or the fried asparagus. Oh, and a glass of vino, of course.
