Cod End Cookhouse
This waterside shack serves lobsters and chowder but also P&B sandwiches for fussy eaters (lobster souvenirs at the adjacent fish market).
AS FEATURED IN...
From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
Just off Via Tornabuoni, one of Florence's fanciest shopping streets, this hole-in-the-wall local favorite is famous for its eccentric chef (his typewritten rules are: no coffee, no credit cards and no steak that isn't blood-rare). But there are few better versions of classics such as osso buco <em>alla fiorentina</em>.
We loved: (meatballs).
Insider tip: If you want the steak, tell them when you make reservations.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
