Aperitivo Hour Returns to Pammy’s in Cambridge

Plus, Benedetto is serving cups of gelato for summer outdoor snacking, and more news

Welcome back to AM Intel, a round-up of mini news bites to kick off the day.

Summer Is for Aperitivo Hours

Cambridge gem Pammy’s — an Italian-leaning restaurant that describes itself as a “New American trattoria” — is bringing back its popular aperitivo hour, starting on Monday, June 24. The restaurant will open at 4:30 p.m. daily (except Sunday, when it is closed) with antipasti specials in the lounge — think charcuterie, terrines and pates, fried scamorza, and other snacks to complement Pammy’s selection of aperitivi, cocktails, and wine (including rotating featured Lambruscos).

Those on the other side of the river craving an aperitivo hour (actually, an hour and a half) can also find one at South Boston newbie Fox & the Knife, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily.

Gelato Alert

Continuing along the Italian theme, Harvard Square’s Benedetto — a fine choice for a nice night out, and home to one of the area’s best pastry chefs, Renae Connolly — is making it easier to get a taste of dessert this summer. Swing by after 6 p.m. daily to buy a cup of gelato or sorbet to eat outside. “We have so many different flavors and toppings,” wrote Connolly on Instagram, sharing a photo of strawberry gelato and sorbet with graham crumble, strawberry compote, and toasted vanilla meringue.
