Local mail order sweets and treats?

We just received an order from Chocolate Therapy in Framingham and it was awesome as usual. They ship in small styrofoam coolers with ice packs inside. We tend to place orders for ourselves and friends a couple of times a year, never disappointed. We have even had them ship to Florida over the winter and it arrived in days.

Good Saturday lunch in Duxbury or Marshfield?

Fairview would be my choice as well. Always consistent and a great location.

Fresh Gnocci where to buy?

Jean-Louis Pasta Shop on Derby Street in Salem has fantastic Gnocchi!

Is there a jazz/music brunch somewhere along Burlington to Peabody area? If not, other birthday lunch/brunch places?

Plum Island Grille in Newbury has a jazz brunch with live music from 1-3pm.

Lunch near Ikea??

The Farmer's Daughter is right up the road in North Easton and they serve lunch until 2pm most days.

The Farmers Daughter-Easton

I have had both brunch and lunch there and both were very good. Always a short wait but worth it.

Giant Subs?

Tony Lena's Subs on the North Shore has been famous for the six footer for over thirty years. He used to hand out mini subs from his home on Halloween.


I do like the menu and a better option than the local chain restaurants in the area. Looks like it is on 3A?

North Shore Function Room

Finz in Salem is a bit beyond your area but has a private upstairs room with a door for private functions.

Pie in and around Cape Ann?

How about a pizza pie from Virgilio's on Main Street in Gloucester, so good! I never make a trip to Gloucester without stopping in for something there.

Restaurants with parking?

Amhreins in South Boston would be a good choice. The turkey tips risotto are fantastic.

Honga in Salem MA?

Very good chicken teriyaki and scallion pancakes. It used to be our go to place for Chinese until a new owner too over the space from Happy House on Canal street. The new place is called Mei Lei Express and it is excellent!

Any great Indian buffets on the North Shore?

Passage to India in Salem is very good but no buffet that I know of.

Dining in Key West

Stay clear of El Mar, food is awful and the chef would be better off selling cars!

Nice birthday lunch in Salem, MA?

Finz is always a good choice and consistent. Turners Seafood would also be a good option. If you like Indian food, Passage to India is fantastic. If you desire a fireplace nearby while you eat, Nathaniel's in the Hawthorne Hotel is decent.

New Yorker in Boston for three days.

A pint or two at Flann O'Brien's and dinner at Amrheins, best reward for a good report card!

Inn, hotel, and B & B dining around the North Conway, NH area

Stonehurst Manor is very good and they have a pizza special on Fridays.I would say it is on the high end for the area as far as prices go.

Has anyone seen Peanut Chews locally?


Lunch in Gloucester

Captain Carlos, right on the water.

Best of, the South Shore Living edition

Fairly generic list.

Bakery made hotdog rolls?

They are pretty large and uncut but so good. Just need to finder bigger hot dogs and your in business.

Bakery made hotdog rolls?

Picked up some last weekend at Market Basket in Salem and they smelled and tasted delicious!

Pride's Piccola Napoletana Pizzeria in Beverly

The pesto pizza sounds fantastic on the menu and so does the white pizza with tuna. Heading there now.

Old Spot in Salem Closing


Old Spot in Salem Closing

It was always a good place for a pint. Looks like the condos upstairs win. One would think that the condo owners above would have known that living above a bar might be noisy at times. Best of luck to the employees and the owner.

Pride's Piccola Napoletana Pizzeria in Beverly

Is it better than Little Italy on Cabot Street?

Boston to Cape

I try not to miss a visit to Karro in Eastham when I am in the area.

Salem Lunch

That would be a long walk from downtown.
