Castagna Restaurant Review

: After a post-fire makeover, extended banquette seating and stone and wood accents lend Castagna a rustic elegance. The atmosphere befits such dishes as steak tartare, gambas flambées au pastis, loup de mer en croûte, and fondant au chocolat paired with a tawny port. Chef Stephane Meloni spent some of his youth working as a private chef aboard a boat in his native Nice, so it's no surprise that seafood figures prominently on a menu that roams Provence, the Cote d'Azur and the Italian Riviera. An extensive wine list spans France, from Alsace to Bordeaux to Corsica.
