THE VILLAGE RESTAURANT Serving up classic New England dishes at affordable prices, The Village remains a favorite on Cape Ann among locals and visitors alike. The restaurant's clams were praised in Saveur magazine for their quality and freshness, and its extensive selection of seafood is held to the same high standard. Whether you choose to sit down to a plate full of the "best soft-shells in the universe," kick back in the outdoor seating area with a tall frosty beverage, or finish off a meal with the "Chocolate Avalanche," The Village is sure to please. • 55 Main Street, Essex, (978) 768-6400, $$ VICTORIA STATION & VIC'S BOATHOUSE Thirty-three years ago the 99th Victoria Station opened in Salem, and has remained the last of its kind in the country, making it an historic landmark in its own right. What most distinguishes the popular locale are the panoramic views of the harbor and classic waterfront dining on Pickering Wharf's docks. The couldn't-possibly-be-any-fresher seafood and renowned prime rib have kept customers returning for more than thirty years. Vic's Boat- house (the bar) offers live entertainment five nights a week and earned regional fame when it was named "Best Bar North of Boston" by Boston magazine in 2012. Actually, the entire "station" is one of the best places on the North Shore for good eats, fun drinks, and large parties! • 86 Wharf Street, Salem, 01970, (978) 745-3400, $$ WOODMAN'S We all know it: Woodman's of Essex is straight- up awesome. Thanks to the vision of "Chubby" and Bessie Woodman, the North Shore is home to the first and best damn fried clams in the world! Not only do their lunch and dinner menus satiate with clam chowder, fresh lobster, and steamed clams, but their clambakes, barbecues, catering services, and online seafood for purchase make local news time and again. • 121 Main Street, Essex, 01929, (978) 768- 6057, $$ STEAKS CAPITAL GRILLE Executive chef Jim Nuetzi delights diners with his every dish. The Capital Grille's cosmopolitan reputation precedes it, and it makes good on the dry-aged meats, eclectic seafood dishes, robust wine list, and consummate staff that its name promises. 10 Wayside Road, Burlington, 01803, (781) 505-4130, CHAMA GRILL If Brazilian BBQ and/or Italian flavors beckon, Chama Grill will absolutely satisfy. For the seriously hungry, consider the Radizio, or "continuous dining concept," which invites diners to indulge in an all-you-can-eat Brazilian BBQ smorgasbord. Expertly seasoned beef, lamb, pork, and chicken and fresh homemade pastas (all of which can be made gluten-free) are their specialties. In-house wine aficionados guide guests in making all the right pairings, and the austerely chic ambience comes alive with music every Friday and Saturday evening. Note, too, that children 12 and under eat for just $12. • 115 Main Street, North Andover, 01845, 978-258-2238, $ DAVIO'S Davio's Lynnfield location is doing something pretty cutting edge these days.
