Strega Waterfront Restaurant Review

: Nick Varano made a name for himself in the restaurant scene when he opened his first North End Strega a decade ago, "treating everyone like a celebrity" and attracting numerous high-profile patrons. This waterfront location is no different in that regard. Massive floor-to-ceiling windows offer a front row seat to the Seaport’s bustling waterfront area, but it all comes at a steep price. Start with a salad, such as the caprese made with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and olive oil that pairs well with a glass of Prosecco. House specialties include a 20-ounce veal chop stuffed with prosciutto and Fontina, grilled salmon with caper mustard sauce, and grilled filet mignon with Mission figs. If you prefer a pasta dish, try the lobster ravioli in a velvety crab meat cream, or the pappardelle Emiliana, the homemade pasta topped with a rich tenderloin meat sauce with porcini mushrooms. For dessert, go for a sampling of limoncello and share the tiramisu.
