Guest Blogger Post: Dining in Boston...

Today we are going to take a little trip to Boston…..

I am in Boston very often and for those that love food, we know there are more then enough restaurants to choose from depending on your mood.  My fiance and I have developed a love for Florentine Café’ on Hanover Street in Boston’s North End. 

The menu offers a great variety and they have a great bar selection.  We usually stop in for lunch but both know their dinner menu is just as delectable.  Here are a few of their selections of the menu:

Veal Alla Crema – Veal scaloppini with shrimp, onions, mushrooms and roasted peppers in a sherry wine cream sauce over linguine.

Chicken or Veal Marsala – Chicken breast or veal scaloppini with prosciutto, mushrooms, Marsala sauce and choice of pasta.

Carpacccio – thinly sliced carpaccio of beef sirloin with asparagus, arugula, aged balsamic extra virgin olive oil and Romano cheese.

One of my favorite dishes and very easy to make at home is pollo con ziti – sautéed chicken with garlic, olive oil, garlic, white wine, broccoli and parmesan over ziti.

Vesuvio – sweet sausage, tomatoes, caramelized onions, smoked mozzarella, zucchini and parmesan.

Florentine Cosmopolitan Martini
Equal parts Orange and Citrus Vodka with Orange Liqueur, Fresh Lime Juice and a splash of Cranberry Juice

2006 Maso Canali, Pinot Grigio, Trentino $10
2004 Rocca della Macie – Chianti  $16

Bon Appetite!
