boston : gennaro's at 5 north square.

so when planning for boston, i talked to a few natives / former residents. everyone said dinner one night in the north end was a must. the problem i encountered was finding somewhere that seemed like they would have vegan options. after some searching, i stumbled upon gennaro's at 5 north square.

a bit about gennaro's : "marisa iocco, boston's only italian-born female chef, salutes italian-american food ... simple, satisfying & pieno d'amore ("full of love")." besides that, there are plenty of vegan options on the menu (and clearly marked as such!)

here's what i had ...

insalata of mixed baby greens :
olives & nonna's agro dolce vinaigrette. 
a basic salad, but sometimes you just want to eat something green. so this definitely hit that spot.

ravioli vegani :
seasonal veggies & cherry tomato sauce.
i don't know the last time i had legit ravioli. so this was quite a treat. great flavor, fresh, overall delicious .

josh + big bowl o' seafood :
josh went the opposite route.

for vegans in boston looking to dine in the north end, gennaro's is the obvious choice. just off the main stretch, it's kind of a hidden gem. check it out.
