North End Feast To-Go by Ristorante Lucia

Summer in Boston’s North End is normally bookended by five iconic Italian feasts, where locals and tourists crowd into the neighborhood’s narrow streets for a celebratory experience. Going back to the North End for a particular feast, for many Italian families, is a way to show respect and their devotion to a particular Saint; to many, it’s an Italian homecoming.

Nothing is normal this year, which is why the team at Ristorante Lucia has summoned their creativity to introduce their North End Feast To-Go to help guests bring the feast experience home. 

Guests can order Ristorante Lucia’s North End Feast To-Go from both the Boston and Winchester locations and each kit serves one person. The contents of each kit offer the restaurant’s interpretation of the classic foods found at each event, from traditional arancini to fried calamari. Kits will differ to reflect the theme of each event and include a fun souvenir like an Italian flag, prayer card, or pin. The restaurant will donate $5 from the sale of every kit to the charitable organization behind each given event.

The North End Feast To-Go will include (note: offerings are subject to change):
