Staying on Long Warf in Boston, one night a colleague and I decided to walk over to North End in the search for dinner. Walking up and down Hanover, Bricco seemed to stand out from the rest and since there was no menu outside, we decided to go in and go for broke.
We started off with a few drinks at the bar, and after a surprisingly short wait we made our way over to our table. Finally getting a chance to look at the menu Bricco was slightly more chic then I was expecting for the night. This was one of those nights I was in the mood for simple pasta and sauce! Instead we started with the calamari, and for an entrée I went for a seafood w/ angel hair special. The calamari was a great way to start the meal. It came with a shrimp or 2 on the side, and was served with a horseradish type sauce. The seafood angel hair dish was interesting… mainly because I did not feel it was angel hair, it was more like thin spaghetti. Not really a major deal, as the dish was excellent otherwise.
I would say we enjoyed the meal as we ended up returning to Bricco twice in the following three weeks. One return was for cordials and dessert and the other a late night dinner, which is a huge plus for Bricco as most other establishments on Hanover were closed by 10pm. On this late night trip I tried the Skate, which I really enjoy but WOW it was a huge piece of fish. I was unable to polish off the dish, I think barely made any damage to the fish! Next time I am in the North End, I will check out other places, only so I have more to compare Bricco to.
