First Annual North End Restaurant Week

Celebrating its fine Italian culinary establishments, Boston’s Little Italy will host its First Annual North End Restaurant Week offering diners economically priced three-course prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus through the weeks of March 28th – April 2nd and April 4th – April 9th . The neighborhood restaurant week menus are priced at $33.10 for dinner and $20.10 for lunch. This event, sponsored by the North End Chamber of Commerce, is a way to stimulate the economy getting local food enthusiasts excited about dining out again.

Long-time Boston restaurateur and North End Chamber Chairman, Frank DePasquale, proposed the idea to the neighborhood restaurant community in order to stimulate neighborhood business as well as the economy during the winter months. “As restaurateurs, my colleagues and I feel a responsibility to stimulate business in the neighborhood, as well as in Boston,” said DePasquale. “Working together by serving great food, we hope to accomplish this for our friends and neighbors.

A list of some of the neighborhood’s restaurants who already signed up to participate include: Bricco, Ricardo's Ristorante, Strega, Cantina Italiana, Ristorante Fiore, Mare, Tresca, Nico, Trattoria Il Panino, Florentine Café, La Famiglia Spagnuolo, North Street Grille, Ristorante Damiano, Ristorante Limoncello, Gennaro’s 5 North Square and Café Graffiti.
