Boston and Miami Restaurants Settle the Score
Now that the Boston Celtics have been sent packing from the NBA Playoffs with their second round loss to the Miami Heat, the sister owners from Nebo Restaurant in Boston’s North End are paying the price for their Celtics pride. After losing their friendly bet on the playoff series with Lincoln Road’s Sosta Pizzeria Enotecta, Nebo owners/chefs Carla and Christine Pallotta were forced to wear hated Heat jerseys at their restaurant while bringing the heat by serving up twin chefs Nicola and Fabrizio Carro’s spicy Diavola pizza.
“It was embarrassing,” said Christine Pallotta. “We’re die-hard Celtics fans and our restaurant is just steps away from the Garden. But we’re true to our word and held up our end of the deal.”
Nebo is an upscale Italian restaurant and enoteca (wine bar) located at 90 North Washington Street in the heart of Boston’s North End and newly renovated Bullfinch Triangle. Nebo’s central proximity to the city’s most sought after tourist destinations and contemporary chic European atmosphere make it the perfect spot to enjoy a unique and memorable dining experience. Born in Boston’s culturally rich North End neighborhood, chef/owners Carla and Christine Pallotta stand inspired by their mother’s and grandmother’s classic Italian recipes as well as their travels throughout Italy and other European regions. Nebo’s stylish décor, reminiscent of modern Italy, is all natural wood, chocolate suede and brick surrounding a 120 person capacity dining area and full wine & liquor bar showcasing a magnificent marble top, glass shelves and plasma televisions.
