All North End/Waterfront business owners are welcome to attend. According to NECC President, Donna Freni, the July 2"d meeting will be the second in a series of monthly meet- ings planned for the coming year. The meeting has an informative agenda that will demonstrate the benefits of being a NECC member, she added. NECC is launching a comprehensive marketing and advertising campaign that brands the North End as Little Italy, promotes North End businesses and encourages visitors to dine, shop and enjoy all that the North End has to offer. Additional information about NECC promotional activities will be discussed at the July 2"d meeting. "The Chamber plays a vital role in the neighborhood and it's a rewarding experience to serve as the President," Freni stated. The Chamber meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 3:30 pm in St. Leonard's Hall, 35 Prince Street. when I mentioned that it was 6:30 pm and we could eat quickly by going a few blocks from where we stopped our tour in front of Christopher Columbus Park to decide, to the North End to Limoncello's. Their short stroll brought relief as they realized a delicious fine dining Italian food experience was min- utes away.Upon arriving at Limincello's doorstep, three men stood outside talking. One asked: "Do you have reservations?" We did not. "Don't worry. I'll get you in." Imme- diately, he spoke Italian to a tall lightly- bearded man who stepped inside the entry and instructed (speaking Italian, of course) to staff who hurriedly moved tables and chairs together. Within seconds, the smiling tall guy gestured us to a table draped with white linen table cloths adorned with silverware and small roses. My cousins grew content as they plopped down to relax in a homey ting; others moved slowly admiring the unique Old World architecture of the build- ings at that end of North Street. Our memorable evening in the North End's North Street neighborhood closed with my cousins' ice-cream penchant at a tiny shop across from Mother Anna's Restaurant at the western edge of Hanover Street. Final relief a few blocks from the vener- able main North End thoroughfare arrived adjacent to Boston Garden at North Station. A pink sunset lit up the sky above Zakim Bridge as we quickly reached the elevator to the subway to hop the Green Line back to Newton. Never failing to offer superb service with personable hospitality, Limoncello's assures visitors that numerous niceties are spread across the North End's cozy neighborhoods.
