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.

    Deep-fried or no?

      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.

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

          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.
