Dishes We Love: Wildfire’s Feta Crusted Steak

[ 0 ] October 22, 2014 |

The Silver Line has truly made Tysons Corner a more appealing place for me.  Being a person that lives on the train, this allows me to venture outside of my comfort zone in the District for dining options.  Wildfire Steaks, Chops & Seafood is one of those places I would not have ventured to, but the Silver Line combined with the good food here may have changed my mind.  Wildfire is the sister restaurant to Mon Ami Gabi, Big Bowl and Joe’s Seafood Prime Steak & Stone Crab.  They host monthly dinners to highlight different areas of the cuisine and recently I had the opportunity to visit for their Taste of Lettuce VA dinner.  My favorite of the evening was Chef Eddie’s Feta Crusted New York Strip Steak.  Phenomenal.  And who knew Wildfire was a sharing place?!  They gave each of the attendees a copy of the recipe, so you know I had to share with you guys.  Here you go and please try this at home!  It will change the way you look at feta and steak forever.
