Pauli’s Set to Open at 65 Salem Street

Press release and some interior photos from the soon-to-open Pauli’s at 65 Salem St. in the location formerly occupied by Going Banana’s:

Pauli’s in the North End set to open this Friday

Mark your calendars for newcomer Pauli’s grand opening

Pauli’s InteriorMeet Pauli: “I started working in the North End in my family’s food businesses when I was just eight years old. Back then, the North End was a neighborhood where everybody actually knew your name, and “freshness, quality and value” weren’t just trendy catch phrases—they were simply expected.”  Today, Pauli’s is based on that same philosophy. We believe you deserve food that’s always served wicked fresh, that always tastes crazy good and that doesn’t cost a lot of money. At Pauli’s, you’ll find the comfort food you crave, the healthy options you want and the variety you need, all for an excellent value. So come on in. We’d love to get to know you by name.

WHAT:  The historic North End welcomes a new addition to the casual restaurant scene this Friday, open 7 days a week, Pauli’s.  Located where Going Bananas was (before they moved across the street) on 65 Salem Street, Pauli’s is a new affordable dining option for takeout or dining in. The owner Paul focused the menu on good fresh food, with a variety of choices, at affordable prices.  He previously owned two restaurants, has 20 years of catering experience, and his family has been in the restaurant industry for 45 years, so you can expect top notch service and quality cuisine. 

Pauli’s Manager Behind the CounterThere are numerous options for dining in the North End but Pauli’s will stand out from the rest because of their homemade specialties, served quickly and flawlessly every time. They will offer simple breakfast favorites, lunch, dinner, and catering options using only the finest ingredients, ordered and prepared daily. Paul is also excited to bring to the area a menu that includes healthier options like salads, Kabobs, grilled chicken, steak, deli sandwiches and wraps, while also offering hearty Italian classics we can’t get enough of in the North End like pastas, meatball sandwiches, and eggplant parmesan. Not to mention burgers, fries, mozzarella sticks and more. Come in and check it out; you won’t be disappointed.

WHERE:  Pauli’s
65 Salem Street
Boston, MA

WHEN: Friday, June 3, 2011, Hours – 9 am to 9 pm
