BOSTON – Coming up this weekend is a favorite neighborhood event – Taste of the North End, a night of food and philanthropy hosted by Donato Frattaroli, owner of Il Molo on nearby Commercial Street.
It’s an event that began with Frattaroli and his wife in 1993, seeking to raise money for Casa Monte Cassino after learning of a family staying there while their child was treated at Boston Children’s Hospital and were moved to help them.
Today, Taste of the North End has more than 45 participating restaurants and foodservice suppliers taking part. Restaurants serve small plates that represent their menu offerings and diners get to taste them all as part of the entrance fee.
This year, Taste of the North End begins at 7 p.m. at the Steriti Memorial Skating Rink, 563 Commercial St. Tickets purchased prior to the event are $99 and will be $125 at the door. It’s a great event for families, singles, and friends.
Come celebrate 24 years with the North End neighborhood and thank the Frattaroli family for creating this special occasion. Go to: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2906733
