Among the Boston restaurant that my LA friends recommended to me was Ken Oringer and Jamie Bissonnette's Coppa. Chef Jamie Bissonnette won the James Beard award for Best Chef in the Northeast region this year. I was pretty excited to try this place and it didn't disappoint.
Coppa was smaller and more casual than I had expected; a cozy enoteca in the South End with reasonable prices.
I started with the Sea urchin panino with lonza and mustard seeds
This was followed up by the Beef heart pastrami crostini
Fluke crudo (raw fluke, green gazpacho, yogurt, chili, almonds)
Sweetbread-nettle stuffed raviolis, ricotta
White pizza with beef tongue and bone marrow
Warm olive oil cake, strawberries, chantilly cream, urfa peppers
This dinner at Coppa is one of my best meals in Boston thus far (that bone marrow pizza!). The menu does change regularly, so I can't wait to go back and try other dishes. Luckily, Coppa's prices are quite reasonable, making it easier to go back again and again.
