Castagna Opening Next Month on Chestnut Street

Before leaving for Turkey, I noted a restaurant called ~CASTAGNA~ (site under construction) was moving into the short-lived Crave City in the Marina from Jerome and Stephane Meloni, previously of Cassis. A press release now reveals more details: Castagna will be a casual eatery, serving French and Italian dishes, plus some “American favorites with a French twist.” Look for crêpes, waffles, hamburgers, pasta dishes, Neapolitan-style pizzas, sandwiches, and salads (all made with quality ingredients). Castagna will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner (once the beer and wine license is secured), and food to go. There will be seating for 24, with plans for sidewalk seating as well. Look for an October opening. 2015 Chestnut St. at Fillmore.
