looking for bakery with torrone
I think thie bakery is within walking distance of Paul Revere House near another well known bakery we went to this place the first time we came to Boston just under a year ago
also i'm sure it was near a place well recomened for calamari almost a hole in the wall.
we will be staying in Back Bay area Thanks!
I'll second the Modern pastry torrone. We bought two boxes for holiday gifts before Christmas.One of regular torrone and one with two kinds of chocolate layers on top - hazelnut and dark. One word - fantastic. Dense, chewy, not too sweet (original, chocolate ones tend to be a bit overly sweet). LA Burdick's chocolate in Harvard Square makes a version of torrone that is good too.
It must've been Modern Pastry because they're the closest I can think of to the Daily Catch which is what I think the "hole in the wall" with calamari is.
In addition to the other spots mentioned, Maria's makes her own.
Maria's Pastry Shop
46 Cross St, Boston, MA 02129
257 Hanover St, Boston, MA
323 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02113
I believe you're thinking of the Modern Pastry Shop on Hanover Street. If they don't have it, try the Salumeria on Richmond Street (which is around the corner from the Paul Revere House) or Dairy Fresh Candy on Salem Street (which is one block over from and parallel to Hanover).
