If you’re looking for a delicious way to observe National Shrimp Scampi Day this Friday, April 29th (and who isn’t), reserve a table at the Southend’s standout Italian restaurant La Sirena.

The eatery’s signature Scampi Marcello, named after chef/owner Marcello Fiorentino, features four jumbo shrimp broiled in the shell and served with a sauce of garlic, mustard, sherry and butter. The dish, one of a menu-full of culinary delights, is the apropos way to celebrate this once-a-year buttery holiday.
