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

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



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 ...



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.
