The Palotta sisters have been everywhere lately, including the “Today Show” and “Ciao Italia” not to mention scoring the win against Bobby Flay earlier in the year. Now, take a culinary walk with Carla and Christine as the NEBO Restaurant (NEBO = North End Boston) chefs meander around the neighborhood with Kathleen Pierce, Globe travel and food writer.
It’s 10:30 on a Saturday morning and the Pallotta sisters are eating square slabs of Sicilian pizza. “The other day I had three of these,’’ says Carla Pallotta, tearing into a cheesy slice at the counter of A. Parziale & Sons Bakery. The tiny Prince Street shop is the first stop of the morning, and it’s hard to tell if the sisters, who own Nebo Restaurant on North Washington Street, are working, socializing, or on a food bender. The Pallottas, who grew up on Endicott Street, a block from where their restaurant sits, have a real Little Italy at their fingertips.
