4 North End Restaurants Bostonians Love
1. Ward 8Named after a local cocktail created in the late 19th century, Ward 8 is a gastropub with vintage-inspired craft cocktails. The menu –– which also comes in late-night sharing and weekend brunch variations -- is filled with sophisticated comfort food plates, while signature and classic cocktails, international wines and local beers make up the drink list. A marble-topped square bar is at the heart of the rustic-chic setting, which also boasts brick walls, tufted leather banquettes, polished wood tables and a classic, old-school vibe.
Taranta delivers hearty Southern Italian-Peruvian fare. The bold fusion cuisine — realized through inventive salads, pastas, meats and seafood dishes — is served up in a regal, three-story space adorned with exposed-brick walls and white tablecloths. To honor the restaurant's commitment to sustainability, the wine list features only biodynamic, organic and naturally produced wines.
Parla serves modern Italian-influenced small plates to pair with its distinctive, whiskey-focused cocktails. Rough woods, copper accents and soft lighting decorate the intimate, speakeasy-inspired spot. The secret, password-required menu is worth discovering.
4. Lucca North End
Lucca North End serves traditional Northern Italian dishes using seasonal produce. The intimate restaurant offers two distinct dining experiences: a cozy stone-walled wine cellar space and an elegant dining room with stained glass window. The restaurant features a popular late-night menu and a full bar serving Italian and American wines, as well as a variety of grappas, aperitifs and liqueurs.
