Walking through Eataly in the Prudential Center may feel like a culinary voyage to a foreign land, but head upstairs and grab a seat at La Pescheria Fishmonger’s Kitchen and you’ll be treated to a contemporary Italian experience that’s all about keeping it local. It’s an upscale-casual seafood bar, featuring daily specials from sustainable local fisheries and seasonal tasting menus that emphasize both Italy’s and Boston’s relationships with the ocean.
The menu at La Pescheria is built on the same fresh-off-the-boat mentality you’ll find at Eataly's fish market, meaning your meal was likely reeled in the same day you ordered it. They’re committed to zero waste by utilizing every part of what’s caught, so expect things to get more creative than grilled fillets. For both lunch and dinner you’ll find a raw bar full of local oysters, small plates in the Antipasti section, hand-made seafood pastas under Primi, and classic Italian entrees in Secondi. There are two- and three-course chef’s tasting menu available if you can’t decide, and the From The Cart section brings you the freshest catches straight from the fishmonger.
La Pescheria is a 23-seat bar in the high-energy heart of Eataly’s immersive Italian marketplace. It’s a casual and contemporary space with a bustling first-come, first-served atmosphere. Once you do snag a seat, you can enjoy the show put on by the fishmonger’s cart piled high with today’s catch wandering between the fish counter and the open kitchen.
The bar program is built on the same seafaring principles as the menu, featuring a small list of coastal Italian wines and a bevy of bubbles and vermouths to keep things light and fresh. Both local and Italian beer is available, and the cocktail list changes with the seasons, full of fresh infusions and Italian aperitifs.
La Pescheria is open seven days, serving lunch and dinner.
