On the Line with Nick Varano: A Strega Origin Story

“I’ve been blessed to have the best staff in the hospitality industry, bar none.”

– Nick Varano

No restaurateur has ever found success by themselves. Starting, running, and maintaining a quality restaurant is a massive undertaking that requires a ton of support from family, friends, and co-workers. We sat down with Nick Varano, the inspiration behind Boston’s Strega restaurants – a brand synonymous with excellent food, atmosphere, and hospitality – to hear his story. If you find yourself hungry in Boston, make sure to stop by any of the Strega locations for an incredible meal!
