North End: In general, Salumerie, & Pastry

Fusilli | Jun 26, 2001 04:22 PM

I spent 2 months in Boston in 1986...and some time in the early 90's there. The North End seems to have a lot more restaurants than back then. On a thursday night, Hanover Street was packed with gaggles of people
Is my impression correct?? Its a much bigger tourist (even local tourist) scene & business today??? I like this neighborhood best in the morning, when it reminds me of genova....lots of little shops, barbers, salumerie..etc...

Salumerie: i found a good one around the corner from Umberto's pizza, a real italy like shop...MOnica's Salumeria also had nice prepared stuff but was pricey!

Tried Mike's and MOdern on Hanover Street. Wasnt too impressed with either of them, nor with MIke's lemon ices. MOdern made a passable sfogliatelle. Theres a small pastry shop on one of the side streets, i think it's Salem Street. They did pretty good biscotti..particularly the almond ones....
