NSHOREMAG.COM 28 AUGUST 2018 dine PHOTOGRAPH BY ELISE SINAGRA A L F R E S C O EDITORS' CHOICE SEA LEVEL OYSTER BAR, NEWBURYPORT STANDOUT QUALITIES: The view—the rolling lawn of Newburyport's Waterfront Park with the Merrimac River just beyond feels like something out of The Great Gatsby. FUN FACT: The patio was elevated 18 inches to improve the view of the water. INSIDER TIP: Grab a spot on one of the couches around the gas fire to cozy up as the sun sets. 1 Market Square, Newburyport, 978-462-8862, READERS' CHOICE LAROSA'S, ANDOVER WHAT'S UNIQUE: A casual café by day, at night La Rosa's turns on sophisticated charm with stylish cocktails, delicious dining, and an urban vibe. 7 Barnard St., Andover, 978-475-1777, B A C O N EDITORS' CHOICE (Tie) TERESA'S PRIME, NORTH READING WHAT'S UNIQUE: It's not often bacon turns up on menus as a standalone appetizer, but this ranks top billing—three slabs of bacon, slow-cooked, and seared with a sweet bourbon glaze. INSIDER TIP: Teresa's looks like a private club because that's what it used to be. Now it's open to anyone who loves great food. 20 Elm St., (Rte. 62), North Reading, 978-276- 0044, RUSTY CAN, BYFIELD STANDOUT QUALITIES: Owner James "Sully" Sullivan cures his own pork belly and then cooks it confit-style, low and slow in its own fat, before searing to order on the grill. INSIDER TIP: The BLT is crave- worthy, stacked with thick bacon and full-sour pickles. Rusty Can, 6 Fruit St., Byfield, 978-462-1204, READERS' CHOICE BACK ALLEY BACON, SALEM WHAT'S UNIQUE: Find the secret password on Facebook each week and score pork- based take out, including anything from pork meatloaf to the "Pork Trifecta"—pork belly, bacon, and ham with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and roasted garlic aioli—at this weekly pop- up. B A K E R Y / B R E A D EDITORS' CHOICE A&J KING ARTISAN BAKERS, SALEM WHAT'S NEW: A second location, with an expanded production facility means more bread for everyone. WHAT'S UNIQUE: A daily rota- tion of breads, like hamburger buns on Fridays and anadama on Sundays, join staples like their baguette and epi—a loaf shaped like a stalk of wheat. FUN FACT: A&J King bread can be found all up and down the coast, from Bar Boulud in Boston to the Common Crow in Gloucester. 139 Boston St., Salem, 978-674-5387; 48 Central St., Salem, 978-744- 4881, READERS' CHOICE A&J KING ARTISAN BAKERS, SALEM LaRosa's
