OPUS The latest venture from Serenitee Restaurant Group, Opus is Salem's hottest hot spot. An eclectic menu including small plates designed for sharing and many organic and vegetarian options, a speakeasy-like Underground lounge, live music, and daring cocktails make it popular with locals and well worth the drive for out-of-towners. • 87 Washington Street, Salem, 01970, (978) 744-9600, $$ SALT KITCHEN & RUM BAR Referring to itself as a "relative of the gastro pub—a public house that specializes in serving high-quality food," Salt Kitchen & Rum Bar takes the idea of comfort food to a whole new level. Pairing dishes like Swordfish with Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Ragout, Capers, and Paella Risotto with specialty rums like Ipswich's greenhead spiced, Privateer cask, and Bully Boy—well, not much gets better than that! • 1 Market Street, Ipswich, 01938, (978) 356-0002, $$ SHORT & MAIN There are four new kids on the block, and they are pros in the hospitality industry! Serv- ing wood-fired pizza from an oven of their own making, filling a raw bar with over 10 of the sea's finest and freshest offerings (keep in mind that the first and last hour of service everyday brings $1 oysters), and mixing spritzes, punch- es, and cocktails to please the band—Short & Main promises to be on par with its successful predecessor, The Market Restaurant. • 36 Main Street, Gloucester, 01930, (978) 281-0044, short- $$$ THE GROG RESTAURANT Named "Best Bar" by The Daily News and earn- ing awards for "Best Burger," "Best Live Music Venue," and "Best Pub Food" make The Grog worthy of an investigative visit for those who haven't opened its doors and tried its grub. Thir- ty-two beers on tap, a hearty menu, and an ex- cellent music line up are part of the place's mission to feed and entertain the people of Newburyport. Initiated by Admiral Vernon back in 1969, the Admiral's vision is honored and skill- fully executed. • 13 Middle Street, Newburyport, 01950, (978) 465-8008, $$ ITALIAN ANDIAMO RESTAURANT + BAR A sharp contemporary interior sets the stage for boutique Italian and Mediterranean dishes at Andiamo. Renowned restaurateur Jim Rogers takes his time when designing dishes and décor, tailoring all details to provide the ultimate menu and most desirable setting. A stone hearth, hefty post-and-beam costruc- tion, and warm woods blend seamlessly with a chic aesthetic. Five-star service, an acclaimed local chef, and an unrelenting desire to please, make Rogers's newest venture a hot hit. • 24 Winter Street, Newburyport, 01950, (978) 255- 4341, $$ BUONO BISTRO It's no longer necessary to go all the way to Boston's North End for authentic Italian cui- sine. Now hungry diners can have Italian-style seafood, veal, and made-from-scratch pasta dishes right here on the North Shore. After 22 years as one of the best chefs in the North End, the talented chef Faisal knows how to prepare traditional and gourmet dishes, and he enjoys adding his own twist to a carefully crafted fine italian cuisine Buono Bistro welcome to 220 Suttton Street North Andover, MA Mon - Thurs 11am–9pm Fri & Sat 11am–11pm Sun 12pm–9pm book your holiday party now with up to 120 people 978.258.0658 check out our new menu items
