BOSTON, MA. - (June, 10, 2024) - Strega Italiano, renowned for its modern Italian dining experiences and warm hospitality, is dimming the lights for its new late-night programming, “Strega After Dark.” Keep the evening electrifying as Strega After Dark boasts a selection of chef-driven savory bites, after-dinner sweets and a curated selection of creative cocktails and espresso martinis.

Guests can keep the evening going strong with late-night bites like the Strega Mini Meatball Sub featuring beef and pork polpettes smothered in Strega’s signature pomodoro and nestled in whipped ricotta with fresh basil. Indulge in dishes like Focaccia Pizza and patate fritte, a hearty dish of garlic parmesan-fried potatoes accompanied by delectable dipping aioli.

Satisfy your late-night sweet tooth with a variety of desserts created by Strega’s Executive Pastry Chef Alex Bonnefoi. Chef Alex debuts his selection of sweets following his recent appearance on Food Network’s Spring Baking Championship where he was a finalist on the critically-acclaimed show. Menu highlights include dishes created by Chef Alex during the intense competition like the Cookie Pizza Pie with four individual slices or the trio of assorted tartlets - perfect for sharing. Top it all off with a night cap like the S'mores After Dark cocktail with a rich blend of white and dark chocolate liqueurs or a variety of Strega’s espresso martinis.

"Living in France profoundly influenced my approach to desserts, a passion I brought to the competition during my time on the Spring Baking Championship,” said Chef Alex. “The techniques and flavors I explored have deeply inspired the creations you'll find at Strega After Dark. I'm truly excited to share my creations with our guests."

Strega After Dark is available Wednesday through Saturday from 8 pm to 12 am in the bar and lounge areas of both the Seaport and Back Bay locations. For more information, visit, or on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
