Best of Boston

2022 Best Brunch, North

The Landing

This longtime hangout on the windswept shores of Marblehead Harbor now has an infusion of fresh talent: Executive chef Alex Pineda is legendary toque Lydia Shire’s son, and he worked with her at Scampo; co-executive chef Noe Ortega also comes from Scampo. This translates to an inspired brunch lineup: think lemongrass-curried mussels, candied-pecan French toast, and Allagashbattered fish and chips — all with a side of superb water views.
