Best of Boston

2022 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, North End

The Daily Catch

Where do North End locals go when they want to feast like Roman gods and avoid the mobs of tourists? The 20-or-so-seat Daily Catch, where a few crucial contingencies (it accepts cash and walk-in customers only, and alcohol-wise serves just beer and wine in plastic cups) filter out out-of-towners and leave more Italian seafood pastas — including excellent squid-ink-blackened linguini with ground calamari, garlic, and anchovy — for the rest of us.
