Where to find Veal Cacciatore HIS way?
October 11, 2010 10:11 AM   Subscribe

I'm asking this question on behalf of my landlord. We're looking for a restaurant serving something he describes as Veal (or preferably, he tells me, Rabbit) Cacciatore in the Boston area. It's not a rare dish, I know, but my landlord is looking for one prepared in Sicilian (his words, not mine) rather than Neapolitan style. Exact specifications within.

May Have:
Veal, Peppers, Onions, Mushrooms, Celery in a vinegar-style sauce.

Should Not Have:
Tomato-based sauce.

Again, I'm going off of my landlord's nomenclature; if the problem is there, and I can find what he's looking for by some other name, I'd be happy to hear that as well.

Man, I'm having a tough time finding it in Boston (aside from Biba, which closed), but it looks like a lot of places in NYC have it. Which doesn't help much :)

The terminology may help you, though: "coniglio alla cacciatora" or "rabbit, hunter's style."

Not sure on the meat, but the non-red sauce base sounds he might be looking for a rabbit or veal piccata?

My best friend says the rabbit dishes at Hamersley's Bistro in Boston are always amazing.

Dolce Vita in the North End is the only Boston restaurant that my Sicilian grandma said had food like home.
