Downtown Crossing restaurant provides area workers with an upscale lunch spot, serving fresh paninis, pastas and salads. – The Scene
Located in the heart of Downtown Crossing, Zita suffers from the same fate that befalls most of its neighboring eateries--a healthy lunch crowd, and a dearth of diners come dinnertime, when the neighborhood is usually deserted. Modern accoutrements and deep red fixtures provide a modern vibe. Pleasant servers deliver affordable bottles of wine from the bar.
The menu of Italian comfort fare includes plenty of options for the indecisive. Lunch fare features warm panini sandwiches (veal parm with fresh mozzarella) and fresh salads. Dinnertime sees the menu expand to include starters like baked gnocchi with Gorgonzola, figs and prosciutto, and sugar cane-skewered shrimp over rosemary polenta with marinated tomatoes. Homemade pasta dishes (lasagne with ground sirloin and Italian sausage) and over-reaching entrees (pan-seared salmon with zucchini frites, avocado salsa and buerre blanc) jockey for diners' attention.
North End comes to Downtown – I liked it here. It is a trendy little spot located in the heart of downtown crossing. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere & decor. It's dimly lit & very cozy. Food is comforting & delish. I had the pork chop & it was thick & juicy. The mashed potatoes were perfect, as well. My friend got the shrimp scampi. We both finished our plates. Make sure to get a plate of the cheesy bread beforehand. Scrumptious. Leave the vodka at home, though. They serve beer & wine only.
