Nana's Krispy Krunchy Chicken & Pizza may be found in Boston, but its recipes were culled from regions much farther south. An entire section of the menu is devoted to fried chicken and biscuits?guests can order white meat, dark meat, or a mix of the two?and other sections include Cajun-style fish and chicken. The selection of gourmet pizzas draws from other areas of the country, as they're served in Hawaiian and buffalo chicken varieties.
“Easy” may be in the name, but this restaurant’s inventive pizza combinations are anything but simple. The Bangkok pizza, for instance, arrives tableside topped with grilled chicken, stir-fried veggies, crushed peanuts, and a peanut Thai sauce, and the Beach Chair sports fresh mango-peach salsa, pineapple, and prosciutto under a portable sun. The creativity continues into dessert, when crusts hold gooey s’more fixings or daring heaps of Nutella, bananas, and caramel. And for those who prefer their crusts in more loaflike form, an array of subs and burgers can be customized to their hearts’ content.

Italy possesses a rich culinary culture, and the chefs at LaStoria Trattoria honor the old-country recipes of Sicily, Rome, and Venice.

Their specialty pastas, meanwhile, incorporate more unorthodox ingredients such as littleneck clams, pink sauce, and toasted crumbs.
