Last weekend the boyfriend and I decided to head out to dinner in the North End of Boston. For those of you who don’t live in the wonderful city of Boston, North End is like a little Italy. Small cobblestone streets, tons of Italian restaurants and shops and always packed. He made a reservation at a place called Pomodoro and we headed out. It was a Friday night so there were lines out of almost every restaurant, a tip if you are going to go to the North End on a weekend night make a reservation, and we went right by the line and into one of the smallest restaurants I’ve ever been in.
North End restaurants are small to begin with but this was a whole new type of cozy, like I had to keep my hand over my water a few times so the girl next to us hair didn’t go into it. After we sat a bread plate and some olive oil came out.
Then we placed our orders, we weren’t starving so we skipped the appetizer and went straight to the entree. Also a tip, if you are going to either get an appetizer or dessert always go for the dessert in the North End! Plus who needs an ap when you can eat all those olives!
I got the vegetable risotto and it was really good. It was just way too oily if you can tell by the picture. I actually drained it twice into the oil dish while I was eating it. So although it was good it wasn’t great. The boyfriend got a pasta that he loved so I’m glad that he was happy at least. I decided to pass on dessert there since I already knew what I wanted, so we payed the check.
Mike’s pastry!! That is a peanut butter canoli and it was amazing! I had a wonderful night and loved going out with the boyfriend for an impromptu date. Like always I’m linking up with Jen at Peas and Crayons to bring you what I ate!
Due to all the indulgence I’ve been having this was needed yesterday for lunch!
