I just found out that Fashion Island landed a major coup, Celestino Drago is opening his first restaurant outside L.A. in spring 2010! Osteria Drago will feature fresh, high quality and seasonal food from throughout Italy. Just think this spring you can order family-style dishes including Naples-style wood burning pizzas, fresh pasta, lasagna, specialties such as pumpkin stuffed tortellini, polenta, fish and game. And it will have a wine bar with an extensive list of rare wines, and a bar menu with charcuterie and small plates available throughout the day.
