Fiola Mare is serving one of our favorite twists on the classic steak and eggs. The unique dish is a Wagyu strip loin with an olive oil poached egg, all finished with a parmigiano crema that takes the flavors to the next level.

Although we mourn the loss of Iron Gate’s ethereal patio during these colder months, we plan to warm ourselves by the carriage house fire with a skillet of their delicious baked hen eggs. The dish comes with fresh Burrata cheese topped with veal and pork meatballs, a combination that is the Italian breakfast of our dreams. Read the review here.
