Bricco – Celebrity Date Night

BRICCO – 241 Hanover Street, Boston.

This Italian restaurant is a favorite for celebrity date nights, but you won’t always see the lovebirds. Owner Frank DePasquale seals off the second floor to give the stars some privacy. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen come often; on a recent visit he ordered the chicken al mattone (seven-spice chicken roasted under a brick), while the supermodel stuck to a salad. When Tom Cruise was in Boston filming Knight and Day, he and Katie Holmes celebrated their three-year anniversary here, sharing zuppa de pesce and raving about the past with meat sauce. They left with a painting by a local artist, a gift from the owner.
