Antonello Ristorante is introducing Southern California’s biggest steak – a 50 oz. cut of USDA Choice beef, announced chef/owner Antonio Cagnolo. Referred to by Italians as "doca," the cut is long, flat and prized for its flavor. Antonello will present it rolled and prepared to guests’ desired temperature along with a selection of sauces to further enhance the beef’s natural flavor. Cost is $79.95 and is meant to be shared.
Steak has always been central to Italian cuisine and Antonello has long offered various traditional cuts like filet mignon, New York strip and ribeye. The Non Plus Ultra – is a stellar cut of beef and is prepared so that it’s juicy and tender. The presentation is unique, the beef is rolled and then slice it against the grain and so the spiral effect remains intact.
Highly rated in the Zagat Guide for several years, Antonello Ristorante has earned a sterling reputation for having served local residents as well as luminaries the world over including presidents, foreign dignitaries, entertainers and business leaders. Co-Chefs Gino Buonanoce and Salvatore Ferrara work closely with Cagnolo to develop daily specials and special prix fixe menus many paired with wines and other spirits. Menu items boast high-flavor profiles, organic ingredients and a light approach to preparing them. Antonello Ristorante is located at 3800 Plaza Drive, at South Coast Plaza Village.
