Melograno Restaurant Review

: Chef-owner Gianluca Demontis' kitchen turns out pristine platters of fried smelts, artichoke and zucchini with Calabrian chili mayo, a wild boar Bolognese over homemade pappardelle, and grilled fish, such as salmon on almond raisin couscous, rich with the flavors of summer. Or just indulge in the appetizers, including calamari stew or home-style meatballs in tomato sauce. Service has disappointed on a few visits: perfunctory at best, oblivious at worst. Add in the ear-splitting volume level and Melograno has a few issues. Still, chef Demontis remains inspired.
