A brazen bruschetta
Gennaro’s Eatery proves that all bruschetta are not created equal. Usually tomatoes and basil on toasted bread, this Italian appetizer at the Quincy restaurant is closer to a pizza without sauce. The crispy, brick-oven crust teems with fresh tomatoes, chopped basil, red onion, and garlic. A drizzle of olive oil and melted mozzarella bring all the flavors together. For lunch, bruschetta ($5.99) might be complemented by a Caesar salad ($3.99). Finish with a sweet, creamy ricotta cannoli ($2.49). Roll home.
