Here’s a Mouthwatering Glimpse Inside SRV
There are plenty of benefits to being a restaurant regular, as the Boston Globe discussed earlier this week: You might get the best seat in the house. Complimentary plates and glasses sometimes find their way to your table. And maybe, you can even fly your drone around the place and make a really cool video.
That last example isn’t so common, but it’s one perk SRV fan Jon Walley got this summer. A video producer at the brand capital firm Breakaway by day, Walley approached chef and co-owner Michael Lombardi about filming a short video, just for fun, of his staff preparing orders at the standout Venetian bacaro. Lombardi obliged, and with the help of drone operator Ian Fein and an additional cameraperson, Ethan Champman, Walley gave the restaurant a delightful, delicious, minute-long video with which to entice future regulars through the doors.
To a soundtrack by Boston hip hop artist Evan Black and producer King I Divine, anonymous hands fill beet casunziei, snip thyme blossoms, and braise garlic in oil. There are macro shots of composed pasta dishes, like the spaghetti alla Busara, and some of Lombardi and co-chef and owner Kevin O’Donnell’s cicchetti, like the airy, savory nervetti fritti. Before the food fills your screen, there are flyover shots showing SRV’s sultry, hidden patio, its quirky art and vintage flatware, and more high-definition details.
