When it comes to the theater district, our hearts and stomachs belong to the humble Chez Napoléon, but right around the corner, Ignazio Pietra, owner of Strata 57, has opened a flashy newcomer, Terrazza Toscana. The pièce de résistance 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 above (with another shot below) 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.
