Alchemy Cafe and Bistro

Alchemy Cafe and Bistro boasts a new Spring menu full of goodies and a redesigned interior with more big chairs and comfy corners. A beautiful and funky new metal sign on the corner should attract some attention. The menu offers yummy sharing tapas as well as pizza and delicious entrees. I love that they really try to source everything locally and care where their meat comes from and what it has eaten. I had to go here after Joey’s food map. There was a serious shortage of Alchemy photos – I had to be sure it got on that food map – and I did my duty. It was tough, boy, I tell you! I managed though…

Rob ordered the grass-fed burger and fries, which were heavily wife-taxed, and my sea bass managed to be eaten almost entirely by me as well. (Poor Rob.) Asparagus with poached egg tapas and a lavender creme caramel dessert made for a fine, rare date night indeed!

New Business Opening! To Go Common Crow

Walking on Main Street, a sign in the window of the slim, vacant storefront between Green Life and Common Crow Natural Market announces some action. A new business! To Go Common Crow, a lunch and drink spot will be opening this summer. Thank you to Lynne for my exclusive, after-hours interview and menu sneak-peak!

Gloucester Classic- The Cupboard Counter

The counter at the Cupboard is made from a classic formica.  All those years, all those patrons served and that old formica countertop is still holding up.  Sure it’s well worn in certain spots, but polished up over the years it’s certainly timeless.  I’d go as far to say that there is something  comforting about and old worn formica countertop.  You know if the establishment that you’re eating at has one like it that they serve the kind of grub that will leave you satisfied.
