Best of Boston

1998 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, North


This long, narrow restaurant in the heart of Newburyport has a certain bistro appeal, and when lit with candles in the evening, it’s, well, not exactly European but charmingly provincial. Caesar Salad and Steak Diane are house specialties— the salad may even be prepared tableside. But as you’d expect in this neighborhood, seafood is the marquee food group, so why stray?
