    Rooftop Dining Comes to the Theater District
    Introducing Terraza Toscana.

    When it comes to the theater district, our hearts and stomachs belong to the humble Chez Napoleon, but right around the corner, Ignazio Pietra, owner of Strata 57, has opened a flashy newcomer, Terrazza Toscana.

    The piece de resistance here is an outdoor terrace, located on the one-story building's roof, that will seat 70 people once the Buildings Department gives the go-ahead. For now, the dining room you see seats about 100.Downstairs, there's a wine vault holding about 1,500 bottles and a bar fit for 70 people.

    Chef Emanuel Concas, a native of Sardinia, has cooked at San Pietro and La Giara. Partner and wine director Ettore Camilleri tells us his signature dish is the inzimino di calamari -- the rest of the menu follows.
