Satyricon displays its fresh catches—including lobster, oysters, shrimp, and whole fish—near the restaurant entrance, and it cooks up this South Atlantic seafood into Italian- and Mediterranean-style dishes. The house specialty is the pargo, or fish crusted in rock salt and baked. But also appealing are the seafood pastas (like the clam-studded spaghetti alla vongole), grilled or steamed lobster, cuts of sashimi, and maki rolls. The stylish, soft-toned dining room is often busy with a social and well-dressed crowd thanks, in part, to past celebrity visits from the likes of Sting and Madonna.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
