At Maggiano’s Little Italy (45 locations), you can order any steak “Contadina style.” That means with “two Italian Sausage links, Crispy Red Vesuvio-Style Potatoes, Roasted Red and Yellow Peppers, Roasted Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Steak Jus, and Garlic Butter,” according to Maggiano’s The Chef’s Table Blog.
“Many guests refer to this as a meal in itself and it is the WOW of all steaks.”
Some meal. The Prime New York Steak Contadina style, for example, packs 2,420 calories. The 1,250-calorie steak alone is like eating five McDonald’s Quarter Pounder beef patties. The 1,170-calorie Contadina-style “garnish” adds another four Quarter Pounder patties, with a cheeseburger on the side.
The “meal” delivers 66 grams of saturated fat (3+ days’ worth of damage) and 5,620 milligrams of sodium. To burn off its calories, you’d have to hit the rowing machine for 7 ½ hours.
WOW is right.
