Picking Your Ideal Two-Course Meal Pairing

Going to a new restaurant is one of life’s most simple pleasures, but choosing what you’d like to eat can get overwhelming at times. When dining at Nico Boston, you’ll have an assortment of fine dining options to choose from. If you’re a first-time guest, refer to this brief meal guide below to choose the best beginning course and entree for the perfect restaurant experience.

If you enjoy light, fresh flavors

When a meal calls for light flavors accented by acid and salt, you can’t go wrong with a caprese salad to begin. This appetizer, which consists of hot house tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and aged balsamic, is the perfect way to prime your palate for your main course. For your entree, our salmon alla piccata will do just the trick! Made with roasted potatoes, capers, white wine, and asparagus, this meal is aromatic, lightly acidic, and satisfying.

If you enjoy a tomato-based, robust meal

When choosing an Italian restaurant, you’re likely looking for a meal that is comforting while still having bold flavors. Start off strong with fritto di calamari, which is prepared Rhode Island style with cherry peppers, accompanied by an authentic pomodoro sauce. From here, move on to the lobster fra diavolo, a scrumptious pasta dish made with Strega tomato sauce, fusilli pasta, and calabrese pepper. You’ll be sure to scrape the plate clean by the end of your meal.

If you’re a seafood lover

We all have that one friend who could truly eat seafood for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you are that friend, you’re in luck – Nico has a delectable selection of seafood dishes for you to choose from. For the ultimate meal, begin with the fritto misto, a fried variety of calamari, shrimp, scallops, onions, and peppers, all topped with a sweet balsamic glaze reduction. Then, go for the Chilean sea bass, which is complemented by ripe tomatoes, white wine, and hearty semolina gnocchi. With this meal, you’ll have a true tour of the ocean and all the tasty things it has to offer.

If you’re a pasta fanatic

When in Rome, eat as much pasta as you possibly can! Start off slow with our burrata & prosciutto dish. Enjoy the confit garlic tomatoes, basil, and aged balsamic, all components which come together to create a phenomenally memorable plate. When finished, elevate your dining experience with Nico’s tableside cacio e pepe, made with simple yet impactful ingredients that dance on your tongue. You’ll likely be thinking about this meal for days after you finish.
