North End Cafe
From house-made pasta to fish sliced and hauled from less than a mile away, the chefs at North End Café draw upon locally sourced ingredients as frequently as possible. Their menu allows patrons to mastermind their own meals by selecting a meat, seafood, or eggplant centerpiece for a variety of dishes. For the putanesca, chefs coat chicken, shrimp, calamari, haddock, or scallops in tomato sauce, and parmigiana dishes center on eggplant, chicken, or veal. Head chef David Ventola helps patrons bolster palates or check in on a grape they released into the wild at wine dinners. During the dinners, David and connoisseurs from Our Glass Wine Company match entrees with compatible beverages, fueling a chorus of clinking glasses and sated sighs.
