Just visit the website and you will be entranced automatically, I promise you this. Sorellina, located on Huntington Avenue in the heart of Boston, has astounded me time and time again with consistently great meals. Now by this point you all know I’m quite opinionated. I don’t tend to plug many restaurants, people, or TV shows. I will, however, break out of my comfort zone this one time to really rave about my experiences at Sorellina.
While I don’t like writing out paragraph long meal descriptions I think now that I’ve been there a few times I’d highlight some of the best dishes.
CRUDO– Sliced Nova Scotia scallops, hot and sweet peppers, celery, Meyer lemons- this appetizer stands out. It’s small portioned but satisfying and well worth trying at least once. The odd pairing of celery, sweet peppers, and scallops somehow works.
TARTARE- Chopped Sirloin, onion marmellata, black truffle vinaigrette. While I’m not one for meat tartare, my dad made me try this dish. It was unreal; sure the look of the dish resembles a dog platter, but the taste is out of this world.
FETTUCCINI – Wild mushrooms, black truffle butter- Although their main dishes aren’t nearly as strong as their first courses, this dish is a winner. The black truffler butter ensures that pretty much everyone who tastes the dish will not be sharing with anyone else at the table. I’m a huge fan of mushrooms and truffle oil in the first place so this dish hit a home run in my book.
*** MACCHERONCELLI – American Kobe beef meatballs, barolo sauce and parmigiano truffled fries with parmigiano- Hands down this is their signature dish, and it deservedly should be. You can opt for the small portioned version of the meatballs for your appetizers or order it for your entree. Regardless, it is absolutely worth trying if you do dine at Sorellina.
PS- If you don’t on your own know to order the side of Truffle Oil French Fries, I’m telling you now to do so.
