Cure Restaurant Review

: Cure’s signature salumi platter, with all meats cured meticulously in-house, affords a chance to savor chef/co-owner Justin Severino’s talent and charcuterie skills in a charmingly rustic, high-energy space rife with camaraderie. Severino’s vision for the restaurant involves showcasing farmers, sustainability and humane husbandry. A love of pig is an asset when dining here, though there are other options, including a chicken entrée, oysters and vegetarian dishes. A good starter is the bread and butter, with indulgent whipped lard, garlic and focaccia. To conclude the meal, go for the dark chocolate soufflé cake.
