We are pleased to offer this new source for your dining experience … the Favorite Dishes for Chefs and Restaurant Owners in our North End neighorhood.  Every week or so, the “favorite” dish will change.  Be sure to check back regularly.

Who knows … their Favorite Dish just might become yours.

This week we highlight Fiore


So as the folks at Fiore will tell you ….

“When Fiore was a boy, his mother would have him keep an eye on the sauce while she went to work picking tomatoes at the neighboring farm. It was not long before Mrs. Collela would come home to increasingly flavorful and satisfying meals. Fiore’s touch elevated family dinners to a new level and soon family and friends would insist that Fiore do the cooking.”


They really mean it when they say “Welcome to Ristorante Fiore, where a lifetime of cooking experience and passion goes into every meal. Fiore can still be found by the stove preparing dishes people crave. If you ask Fiore what keeps him going, the answer is: you. His greatest joy is pleasing the palates of friends, family and the stream of regulars. Fiore’s soul satisfying Italian cuisine is inspired by you.”


Meet Fiore … and you’ll be happy to learn  he has a gift. “When Fiore meets somebody he can sense what they would like to eat. Sometimes he knows before they do. From his Carpaccio di Manzo to his Costata di Vitello he has the gustatory masterpiece that will satisfy all your senses. So, if Fiore says you look like a fish or maybe a little duck, it’s not an insult. He’s just sizing you up for the meal of a lifetime. Fiore cooks with you in mind.”

Now as to his Favorite Dish?    It’s the Costata di Vitello … a grilled Veal T-Bone, finished in a truffle sauce, served with caramelized onions and served with truffle mashed potatoes.

As they say in this neighborhood, mange, mange.
