Where to shop for first night meal in Charlestown
We are flying into Boston late Th afternoon and want to pick up meats, cheeses, etc. to bring to our daughter's house that evening. We will be walking from Monument St in Charleston and will walk to North Boston. Where can we shop to put together a good antipasti or food for wine night?
Any suggestions appreciated.
Most people call it the North End. You might get some puzzled looks calling it North Boston.
My first stop for food would be Monica's Mercato (Salem Street). You can get most of what you need there, but you might as well check out Salumeria Italiana (Richmond Street) as well. People here have been speaking highly of Bricco Panetteria (off Hanover Street) if you want to get bread.
Monica's has wine as well. If they don't have what your looking for, Wild Duck (Salem Street) and V Cirace & Son (North Street) are good shops.
I second Salumeria in the North End(Boston's Little Italy) if you're going to that area. I haven't been to Monica's since the expansion.
