(BOSTON, MA) March 1, 2010 – 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. Much like Restaurant Week Boston®, the event, which is 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 who just launched his latest restaurant venture, Splash Ultra Lounge & Burger Bar, in September of 2009. “Working together by serving great food, we hope to accomplish this for our friends and neighbors.”
A list of some of the neighborhood’s most beloved restaurants have already signed up to participate; including Bricco, Ricardo’s Ristorante, Strega, Cantina Italiana, Ristorante Fiore, Mare, Tresca, Nico, Trattoria Il Panino, Florentine Café, La Famiglia Spagnuolo, Al Dente, North Street Grille, Ristorante Damiano, Ristorante Limoncello, Gennaro’s 5 North Square and Café Graffiti.
