Where to Eat in March: EaTo, Butcher & the Boar, Colita, and More


When March rolls around, a certain madness takes hold in the north. After months of winter, winter, winter, we’re all a little stir-crazy and ready for a change.

Plenty will whisk your tastebuds away to another place, if only for an hour or two. EaTo promises a taste of Italy through classic dishes and market goodies. At Zen Box, the focus is on Japanese curries, ramen, and more. Japanese cooking techniques — united with Peruvian ingredients — also figure into the food at new kid on the block K’kinaco Nikkei & Pisco Bar.
