Where is a good, non touristy place for authentic Canina beef cooked Bistecca Fiorentina style?
Check out the links shown below. This topic has been discussed here a good number of times. Sostanza gets recommended often.
Agree on that..I like that place quite a bit, but it's been a few years since I've last dined there..
Also, I believe menus will specify if the beef is Chianina. There are many very well regarded butchers and restaurants that sell imported beef so I would not discount a place for that. In fact I believe I've read that most bistecca on menus today is from Spain or Piemonte, or perhaps even a Balkan region.
much of the meat comes from bologna hills too- really not that much chianina around and it is a tougher meat than the others--- which really is not what people expect.
more than anything the Authentic Bistecca alla fiorentina is a way of cutting the meat and cooking it done almost exclusivly in Florence-. the Cipolla Rossa Restaurant serves both male and female steaks-- you choose and is owned by Massimo Mannetti a 4th generation butcher in the san lorenzo market,
