In the season of excess, chef Marc Orfaly debuts a new small plate menu at his North End eatery, Marco. Available through the end of the year, the menu features bites like saffron and fontina arancini, gorgonzola-stuffed cherry peppers, sopressata and shrimp origanato – all priced in the neighborhood of $6. Orfaly is also offering some of the restaurant’s best bottles of wine in ¼, ½ and 1 liter vessels. So, now you can graze freely, sampling an assortment of dishes without gorging yourself. Call Marco at 617.742.1276 to make reservations or for more information.
