Whether you’re in the mood for a neighborhood joint or a celebrity chef’s newest showpiece, these eateries are sure to delight.
Nick Varano is known for his splashy Strega restaurant, where big personalities do big deals. His Rina’s breaks the mold: The narrow North End cafe has a handful of stools, a concise menu, and a downright quaint window display featuring authentic Neapolitan pies and grilled veggies. Opt for a massive triangle of pizza – pleasingly thing and just the right amount of sweet – and take it to go. For $3, it’s one of the neighborhood’s best deals.
