A friend who has a long layover before flying overseas is meeting me at the Aquarium for an early dinner and then we'll walk over to the North End. (4:30ish). I'm figuring that most places won't even be open yet for dinner, so we should grab some crusty bread and toppings and of course some pastry from Modern.
Any recs for "best of the best?" I know the Salumeria Italiana (I think that is what it is called, the one around the corner from Hanover and Modern Pastry). I could get bread there...(or should I get it elsewhere?)
What's the best prosciutto (or other meat) to eat outside with bread and cheese and maybe some fruit?
Any fabulous cheeses or other picnic items we shouldn't miss?
