BostonMan Magazine features Ray Bourque and Tresca in Boston’s North End.
When you hear that Boston Bruins legend Ray Bourque owns a restaurant, you may expect it to double as a shrine to his Hall of Fame hockey career. You head downtown and Tresca isn’t too difficult to find, just a few steps off Cross Street up famous, busy Hanover Street on your right. You’re just a six-minute walk from TD Garden, the home of the Bruins and Celtics. But, more importantly, you’re right in the thick of Boston’s “Little Italy,” with the smells of sauces cooking and pastries being baked filling the air, while local business people, residents and tourists cross paths as they hustle and bustle at all hours of the day. You walk in the door and, instead of finding a raucous sports bar atmosphere, you find elegance.
