Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! If you love good wine and Italian food, starting soon is the North End’s Wine Tour. Where you’ll munch on cheese platters while sipping Proseco all while wandering through the historic North End. Your first stop is Aragosta Restaurant at Fairmont Battery Wharf. Enjoy an open kitchen and an outdoor terrace with views of Boston Harbor and the U.S. Coast Guard. You’ll be tasting hand-made pastas, prime meats and original New England seafood. They only use quality, locally farm raised ingredients.
Your second stop is Genaro’s 5 North Square or Artu Rosticerria & Trattoria. Located right near Paul Revere’s house on the Freedom Trail, Genaro’s 5 North Square restaurant has been owned and run for four generations by the Anzalanoe family. Sample mushroom torte or their staple, the Calamari.
Artu Rosticerria & Trattoria has been open since 1992 and offered classic Italian comfort food with a modern spin. Artu is located on Prince Street in the heart of the neighborhood. You’ll be sampling Bruschetta with Broccoli Rabe, Cannellini, Garlic, Olive Oil, and Grana Padano.
Your last stop will be at either The Wine Bottega or Boston Bottles. The Wine Bottega is a small shop located on busy Hanover St. The tasting is held in the comfy wine cellar. Boston Bottles is a small wine boutique located on the outside of Boston’s North End and with the limited shelf space, they feature only their best wines.
What’s one of the greatest things about this tour? It’s two hours and only $66. It’s just long enough and well worth the price.
