New World Italian

by Maggiano's Little Italy

Available July 4 – September 25*

Happy Independence Day and welcome to our New World Italian features! Thinking about the Mediterranean coast and summertime, lighter options are brought to you from our Chefs.

New World Italian

Our Chicken Caprese is perfected by grilled focaccia, grilled asparagus and fresh Mozzarella. Grilled Shrimp Lemonette offers vibrant colors and packs great flavor with radishes and snap peas. Grilled Salmon Capri (shown above) is served with a tangy yogurt sauce with tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and fresh herbs. Kalamata olives add a finishing touch on this Mediterranean-inspired fare. The Tuscan Herb Sirloin Medallions feature mushrooms in a bigger way than usual and the herb and sun-dried vinaigrette brings the dish together to make it a little lighter than other steak options on our menu.

Maggiano’s Little Italy Chef Tips: Favorite Gluten Free Preparations

“One of our most requests for gluten free dishes are our Baked Ziti and Grilled Chicken Breast with Broccolini and Grilled Tomatoes; Fresh Fruit Plate; Grilled Vegetable Plate; and Grilled Salmon Lemon & Herb.”
– David Duron, NorthPark Executive Chef

“Our menu has a few items that are gluten free like Tomato Caprese, Beef Tenderloin Medallions without the crispy onions, and Crème Brulee. Here are a few items we have made for guests:
-With 24 hour notice, I have made a crustless cheesecake;
-Grilled Salmon Lemon & Herbs on a bed of sautéed spinach, without the orzo;
-The Bowtie Aglio –  substitute gluten free pasta is a pretty good dish;
-Chocolate Sambuca Mouse, [Chocolate Zuccotto Cake filling] with whipped cream and toasted almonds;
-Grilled Chicken Tomato Basil without the orzo;
- and Steak, NY or Filet, Contadina style if the potatoes are baked or omitted.”

Maggiano’s Leftover Remix Recipes

Repurposing Leftover Maggiano’s Recipes

With our generous portions, you may have brought Maggiano’s leftovers home at least once. What do you do with your leftovers? Maggiano’s leftovers for breakfast, in a sandwich, snack or dessert can take your home-cooked favorites to a new level.

Contadina Style Frittata
Contadina is one of our preparations that can be added to any Veal Porterhouse or steak dish. This includes Italian Sausage links, Crispy Red Potatoes, Roasted Red & Yellow Peppers, Roasted Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Steak Jus, and Garlic Butter. This recipe can also work with you leftover Sausage & Peppers appetizer.
Make sure you’ve sliced the meat into bite-sized chunks. In a large, greased skillet, combine 6-8 beaten eggs with your leftover steak and Contadina ingredients.  Then cover and cook on medium heat for approximately 20 minutes or until the center is firm. Add your favorite cheese (we suggest Ricotta or Parmesan), slice and serve. We added parsley as a garnish to ours, but imagine what you could do with our Fresh Grilled Asparagus and this dish!

Maggianos Leftover Remix Recipes

Chicken, Veal or Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich
Follow our reheating instructions with any one of our Parmesan dishes to make this yummy sandwich. Add a fresh layer of Provolone cheese on sliced focaccia, and toast to melt the cheese. Ask your server for a jar of one of our Sauces to purchase, and add make sure you have plenty of Marinara for dipping!

Caprese Pasta Sauce
The tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and balsamic glaze from our Tomato Caprese appetizer can be diced and cooked into a comforting sauce that can be served hot or cold. Just add olive oil, minced garlic, balsamic vinegar, basil and salt and pepper to taste. Try this with your favorite pasta, crostini, or take-home Four-Cheese Ravioli and you’ll be glad you did!

Chocolate Zuccotto Cake Balls
Transform last night’s Chocolate Zuccotto Cake into bite-sized cake balls to share today.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the cake with with ¼ cup milk or less. You just want to moisten the cake enough to be able to roll into 1 inch balls. Melt chocolate morsels in a microwave or double-boiler. Check and stir often. Dip each ball into melted chocolate, and set on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper to cool.

Maggiano’s Steaks: Contadina and al Forno Style

by Maggiano's Little Italy

Contadina and al Forno are two presentations we have always done as an addition to all of our Maggiano’s steaks. They are extreme dishes and are among the most decadent of Italian-American steak presentations.

Maggiano's Steaks: Contadina and al Forno Style
Prime New York Steak – Contadina Style

 

Contadina style includes two Italian Sausage links, Crispy Red Vesuvio-Style Potatoes, Roasted Red & Yellow Peppers, Roasted Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Steak Jus, and Garlic Butter – many of guests refer to this as a meal in itself and it is the WOW of all steaks.

Al Forno style is when the steak finished and baked with Gorgonzola Cheese, and served on a bed of Portabella Mushrooms that have been cooked in Balsamic Vinegar, Steak Jus and Garlic.

Doesn’t that sound like the perfect Father’s Day dish? They have always been hidden secrets and also can be done with Chicken Scallopine as well if requested.
