North End Progressive Dinner Part 1 | Fiore

Pre Dinner Cocktail
Girlfriends and I kicked off a 5 stop Saturday night tour-de-north-end at Ristorante Fiore. We caught up over martinis at the sparkling granite bar where I sipped one of their specialties made with a sturdy amount of gin, fresh muddled basil and lime. It was equal parts herbal and refreshing, but mostly it was strong. Really strong. As we progressed to the next location, I was already feeling buzzed, not to mention ready to fill my empty stomach with some of the North Ends finest cuisine. And especially to be spending time with some of my favorite ladies.
Stay tuned this week for a new post on the progressive dinner each day!

Love progressive dinner parties! Been dying to do one in my own neighborhood.

That drink looks great - I like that you can actually see pieces of the muddled basil and lime, it looks super refreshing!
