Restaurant Week

Dear Members,

Our next event, which I've just posted, will be a Restaurant Week Dinner at Strega-North End, 379 Hanover Street. The food is good and the portions are large. The Restaurant Week Menu costs $33 for 3 courses +tax(7%), tip(18%) and drinks. See menu below:

 

Antipasto e Insalate
Porcini Ravioli
ravioli stuffed with porcini mushrooms in a black truffle cream sauce

Prosciutto Bocconcini e Pepperoni
homemade fresh bocconcini mozzarella wrapped with the finest Italian prosciutto and
served with marinated roasted peppers

Calamari Fritti
lightly deep-fried fresh calamari served with marinara sauce

Portobello Griglia
grilled portabello mushroom stuffed with spinach and fresh ricotta and mozzarella cheese, topped with a San Marzano sauce

Entrée
Grilled Sirloin Steak
fresh peppercorns in a brandy demi glaze

Chef Sal's Pasta
seared scallops, pappardelle pasta with wild mushrooms in a truffle cream sauce

Pollo Cacciatore
pan seared chicken with onions, mushrooms, and red peppers in a plum tomato sauce

Risotto Calamari e Fuseli
garlic, calamari and peas with a touch of spicy tomato sauce

Dessert
Tiramisu

Cannoli

Crème Brulee

But this event will also have a theme park feel. What's the theme? I'd call it mafia-chic. On a recent visit, I saw pictures of the owner with actors from the Sopranos. Occasional glances at the movie showing on the video screen showed a victim being machine-gunned and another being stomped on. (All in a night's entertainment.) The host looked like a bouncer, and probably was. The blonde behind the bar would fit in at the Badda Bing club. But just wear your bullet-proof vest, start humming the theme from The Godfather, declare that Frank Sinatra is your patron saint and add a vowel to your last name. (if necessary) You'll fit right in!

Speak softly love and hold me close ...

Ciao,

Jim

p.s. If you're late, you'll be taken out back and given a beatin'. But don't worry! You'll still be allowed to dine with us.
