Strega Pizzeria and Cafe Plans to Open in Boston's North End
The person (and restaurant group) behind several Boston-area eateries is planning to open another dining spot in the North End.
The NorthEndWaterfront.com site reports that Strega Pizzeria and Cafe is looking at the space on Hanover Street where Casa di Stile had been--and next to Strega Ristorante. The post says that Nick Varano of The Varano Group is hoping to transfer the Malt and Wine with Cordials License at the now-shuttered Nick's Famous Deli on Cross Street to the new spot, with the North End/Waterfront Residents' Association looking into the proposed transfer this evening.
In addition to Strega on Hanover Street, Varano also owns Strega on the waterfront and Nico in the North End. (Another Strega is coming to Woburn as well.)
The address for the this proposed restaurant is 371-373 Hanover Street, Boston, MA, 02113. The website for The Varano Group can be found at http://www.thevaranogroup.com/
