Strip House Potatoes Romanoff

A Greenwich Village Potato Dish

Twice-baked potatoes take on bold new dimensions of flavor in a rich, creamy gratin with shallots and cheddar cheese. This dish is one of the signature sides at Strip House, a steakhouse in New York City’s Greenwich Village. The potatoes need to be baked a day in advance, so plan accordingly.

  1. Would love to try this but I think part of the directions for this are missing? I can probably figure it out myself but it would be nice to have the rest of instructions.
