I'm told by restauranteur Nick Varano's reps that his newest restaurant, Strega Prime, opens in Woburn on August 5. (Varano also operates Strega in the North End and Strega Waterfront.) The newest Strega is at Woburn's Tradecenter at 100 Sylvan Road, the former Beacon Grille space. It's very close to Route 128 and Middlesex Superior Court — so your post-jury duty protein fix is just a couple blocks away. Varano calls his third Strega an Italian steakhouse; the executive chef is Farouk Bazoune, who used to be executive sous chef at Mooo. (Pastry chef Suzanna Bradley also hails from Mooo.) Check out the menu ahead.
