Alcove: New England Ingredients, Mediterranean Dishes

The stunning waterfront views are only part of what has made Alcove such a success since it joined the North End culinary scene a couple months ago. The cuisine itself also has patrons abuzz since the chef uses locally sourced, sustainable ingredients to craft innovative Mediterranean tapas and mains.

Stop by for dinner to grab a glass of wine and share a few of the smaller plates, like the popular Spanish octopus and the charred avocado with harissa aioli. Alcove also boasts a raw bar with options like New England oysters and Jonah crab claws. If the tapas don’t fill you up, devour a main dish from the field, sea, or land, like the grilled bavette steak or the pan-seared sea bream. Cap off your meal with an artisan chocolate tart or a few scoops of seasonal sorbet.
