Profile

Staking a reputation on a single dish can be dangerous business for a restaurant, especially when that dish is steak: Don't we already have Peter Luger? Bistecca Fiorentina's namesake 32-ounce porterhouse doesn't come close to Luger's. The cut is presented oddly pre-sliced, and tastes as if the kitchen just had it hanging around. You can get away with sloppiness in some dishes, but not in your signature recipe. As if to guard against steakhouse stereotyping, the restaurant also offers an array of Northern Italian and Tuscan dishes, like pappardelle with rabbit and at least a dozen nightly specials, like lobster ravioli and a hot antipasto platter. The setting isn't bad: there's a small front patio, and if you squint just right in the brick-walled dining room, you might feel like you're in a Tuscan osteria, complete with wall-size wine rack. But open your eyes and you're back in a crummy Theater District restaurant, surrounded by businessmen in their shirtsleeves and Euro tourists scarfing down mediocre fare as if they didn't know the difference. You deserve better.
