What to Eat at Pazzo, Now Open on Newbury

Pazzo is now serving Italian fare in Croma’s old space on Newbury. The restaurant is helmed by Bill Bradley, founding chef of Carmen and Bricco, and former culinary director for Rustic Kitchen. The menu looks a notch above Croma’s with wild boar Bolognese, octopus carpaccio, and lobster minestrone. In the grand Newbury Street tradition, there’s an outdoor patio.

Full menu, complete with made-to-order fresh mozzarella, after the jump.
