North End Restaurant Week suggestions

tsackton | Jul 21, 2009 08:31 AM

My wife and I moved to Somerville about 10 months ago, and we still have not had the chance to spend a day exploring the North End. With summer Restaurant Week coming up, we thought this would be a good excuse to get out to the North End for a day. The plan: pizza for lunch at Pizzeria Regina, followed by pastries (Mike's, Modern, or Maria's) and strolling around the neighborhood. Late afternoon snack of oysters and a drink at Neptune Oyster. Dinner somewhere offering a restaurant week menu. The only challenge is that my wife is a vegetarian (no meat or seafood -- I will be the only one eating oysters at Neptune), which usually isn't a problem at Italian restaurants, but might be more of an issue with the limited RW menus.

I've had my eye on Taranta for a while -- anyone had good or bad RW experiences there? Anyone have other suggestions of places that do a good job with RW? The list of restaurants is here: and the backdoor to the menus is here:

Thanks in advance!
