Good Eggplant Parm

senji000 Mar 2, 2012 01:33 PM

Who makes good eggplant parmesan in the city--meaning thick cut, brined, seasoned, with fresh mozzarella and homemade thick stewed basil tomato sauce over fresh pasta? Does anyone?? I would love to go out for this sometime and try something better than I can make myself.

    senji, do a search and you will find the same question asked a yr or so ago by me. for me, Gran Gusto's is terrific. Francesca's in Arlington is not. Rino's in East Boston is good but not as good as GG.

      I have always enjoyed it at T. Anthony in Allston. It may be breaded.

        Gran Gusto makes the best eggplant parm I've had, but it's served as an appetizer so doesn't come with pasta. You could probably order it with a side of pasta, though.

        I haven't had the one at Vinny's at Night in Somerville, but it seems like a good bet from what I've heard.

          You can also get an eggplant parm panino at Gran Gusto for lunch, which is transcendent.

          Maria di Napoli in Nonantum makes a very respectable eggplant parm as well.

          Deep-fried or no?
