At Acitrón, chefs elevate traditional Mexican mainstays to bistro-level sophistication. Like the world’s most edible bionic man, each dish is assembled by a crack team using locally sourced produce, meats, and seafood, with menu items including tilapia fish tacos and the crepas de rajas poblanas stuffed with grilled poblano strips, corn kernels, yellow squash, zucchini, and sour cream. Meals unfold in a dining room decked with hardwood floors, floral artwork, and sparkling granite tables topped with flickering candles. Shielded by a basket of fresh limes, a full bar slings libations including margaritas, specialty cocktails, and tequila drinks. Acitrón’s scratch-made desserts also add sweet punctuation to meals with bites including flan, tres leches, and chocolate tamales topped with Mexican-vanilla ice cream.
Drawing upon their training at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, Scugnizzi's chefs craft heaping portions of traditional, housemade Italian cuisine. After it makes them clean their rooms, cooks hand-stretch mother dough into thin-crust neapolitan pizzas before baking them in a hearth stone oven at more than 700 degrees. Their white and whole-wheat subs and wraps—named for Italy's 20 regions—incorporate ingredients such as sopressata and balsamic reduction, while their pastas include lobster ravioli and housemade sausage coated in porcini-mushroom cream. Meals can unfold in Scugnizzi's dining area or in the comforts of your home via delivery.
