Since moving to Boston, Hamza and I have certainly attempted to explore Boston’s vast expanse of eateries. We’ve hit the South End (most notably, to B&G Oysters), Back Bay, Brookline, Allston (really?), our own Brighton (My favorites being neighbors Tasca and Bamboo). We had a low-key Valentine’s Day here and got our superbowl Sunday wings here. We don’t discriminate on price (except when we must, cough cough Capital Grille) or location, and we eat most cuisines (in fact, a local spot I’ve been dying to try serves Baluchistani, Hungarian and French cuisine), but we have not managed to explore the culinary intracacies of the North End.
One place in particular that I’d like to try is Limoncello, which owner Maurizio Badolato opened after winning a million bucks on a scratch ticket a few years back. Since, he’s won $10,000 and $20,000 on scratch tickets and still loves with his mother. That alone would be enough to get me in there but as it turns out, the food is said to be awesome too.
I guess next time I’m hanging out in the North End I’ll have to skip the chowdah bowl and get myself to Limoncello.
