2021 Best Al Fresco Dining, North


Soggy night? No problem: Award-winning chef Frank McClelland, formerly of the Back Bay landmark L’Espalier, has you covered — literally. Thanks to a protective overhang strung with twinkling lights, his Beverly restaurant’s charming patio is the perfect spot to enjoy striped bass and saffron-infused arancini al fresco even when the weather doesn’t cooperate. On balmy evenings, don’t miss the grilled oysters from the outdoor smoker.
