Tresca Facebook

Tresca boasts some of the best Italian food in the North End, yes, but on Monday, December 10th, they’re saying ciao to their roots and exploring cuisine from other parts of the Mediterranean Sea with a sampling of Greek wines and spirits. Chef Rich Ansara presents a four-course menu of fattoush salad, souvlaki, kokkinisto and loukoumades (peep the full details below), along with a tasting reception that kicks off at 6:30pm with live music. The evening will be hosted by three special guests: former professional hockey player and Tresca owner Ray Bourque and WCVB anchors Maria Stephanos & Ed Harding. Dinner is $125 per person, excluding tax and gratuity, and you can make a reservation by calling 617.742.8240.
