    Estragon, Toro, and Dali all do nice versions.

      Prezza in the North End makes an excellant paella.

        If you want an authentic paella, I wouldn't try the one at Prezza. Had it for the first time in October and was very disappointed. Not enough rice at all.

          I had it over the summer, and my dish had a decent amount of rice. What I liked the best was how it stuck to the pan a little and gave it a nice crunch. Can't speak to authentic, as I've had so many different versions over the years, I'm not even sure what authentic is.

          Prezza no longer has Paella on their menu.

          The rice is the most important aspect of a good paella.
          i have found the one at Dali lousy, while the paella served at Toro is inconsistent, but I must say that on some days it is sublime.

            I like the paella at Toro and go there just to eat it. If you have enjoyed paella in Spain, I think you'll like it.

              Sophia's Grotto in Roslindale does a great Paella.

                I don't know if you would consider the Portuguese version or not, but Atasca in Cambridge does a nice one.
