On Sunday, Jan. 29, five restaurants rallied together for the 7th annual CityFeast: Dining Out to Conquer Diabetes, offering five courses with wine pairings to benefit Joslin Diabetes Center’s High Hopes Fund. Participating North End Boston restaurants included Antico Forno, Terramia, Tresca, Lucca and Tarranta.
Mayor Thomas M. Menino joined the group at Antico Forno, where he addressed the crowd to financially assist the Joslin Diabetes Center in furthering research for a cure. In addition to a delightful Italian meal paired with wines, a raffle for a S50 Black Vespa was held. The winner, Sara Hancox, a waitress of Antico Forno, won the raffle.
