A fine-dining venue in Boston’s coolest corner, Prezza is a local favorite. Having taken inspiration from the cooking methods of his Grandmother’s birth village, the chef here takes great pride in creating exciting twists on tried and tested classic dishes using only the freshest seasonal produce available. There are over 8000 bottles of wine to choose from and the choice of dishes – although much more concise – is just as impressive. Think wood grilled quail with bacon and red wine lentils, crispy shrimp with Italian slaw, chestnut raviolini with pulled duck and halibut with parsnip puree.
