You’ve probably seen Strega owner Nick Varano in plenty of photos, standing side-by-side with some of the biggest stars including Jamie Foxx, David Ortiz and Rob Gronkowski. His Boston-based restaurants have won countless awards from the Wine Spectator Best Award of Excellence to the Boston Area-Restaurant Award by the Boston Globe.
Now it’s time to get to know the mastermind behind these award-winning Italian steakhouses.
Nick Varano gives praise to his mother who cooked delicious meatballs growing up as she was the true inspiration for his love of warm, home-cooked Italian food. Mr. Varano also dishes about how the breathtaking North End provided him with plenty of motivation for his creative Italian cuisine. Working in his uncle’s store, cutting cold cuts and making sandwiches carved out his future as an acclaimed entrepreneur.
Whether you’re on a date, celebrating a holiday or you’d like a night bonding with your family, the Strega restaurants are known to bring people together.
“At the end of the day, I’m just somebody that wants to make everybody feel special”
