Vito's Tavern

The dude behind Ristorante Damiano's just opened this North End "lounge-meets-sports-bar", which pairs leather banquettes with Italian-y green/red walls framed with memorabilia and bright oil paintings of sports stars. Sixteen draft brews (BBC's Steel Rail, Stone IPA) and goodness from a bloody mary bar wash down a diverse lineup of foodstuffs that includes Korean pork tacos w/ a sesame-chili salsa roja, chipotle wings, and a beef/roasted tomato/parmigiano frico burger heaped with shiitake mushrooms and called The Fifth Flavor, which ironically, the futuristic she-hero from the Bruce Willis movie will skip in favor of chicken.
