Taranta

ADDRESS: 210 Hanover St, Boston, MA 02113

CUISINE: Italian, Peruvian

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS

Peruvian native Jose Duarte brings his heritage to the table as chef-owner of Taranta, which serves Peruvian-Italian dishes such as cassava root gnocchi with a slow-braised "Chica de Jora" green lamb ragu.

Full bar. Serving dinner nightly.

From the restaurant's website:

"Taranta is the result of a marriage between Southern Italian cuisine and Peruvian cuisine, and its success is due to its quality of food and service. And having a strong personality really helps."


"Jose Duarte, chef/owner, started out serving Southern Italian cuisine, then began using ingredients from his native Peru to feed his cooks before the restaurant opened for the evening. Later a few ingredients such as rocoto peppers crept into Italian dishes on the menu. When those met with success, Duarte became bolder, and the result a few years later is an intriguing melding of the exotic and more familiar Italian."
- Alison Arnett, The Boston Globe
