India, Laila, and Dawn
Today I met my friend Catherine there and we had a luxuriously long chatty lunch. Despite the hours spent catching up, Laila, our beautiful waitress, never once made us feel anything less than entirely welcome. Catherine had the sumptuous cobb salad, topped with chicken salad, and I had their wonderfully delicious Caesar salad, with perfectly grilled shrimp. Even Passports regular coffee is rich and full flavored!
Happy Dining and Shopping Main Street!

Passports Caesar Salad
Over Labor Day weekend we went with our daughter’s boyfriend, Matt, to Passports for a beautiful lunch. We were greeted by wonderfully friendly, helpful, and super professional India, Lyla, and Shawna.
As all who have eaten at Passports know, within a few moments after being seated, guests are immediately served fresh from the oven, piping hot popovers. This is always a welcome treat, and was especially so for Liv and Matt that afternoon as they had been hiking all around Coolidge Reservation earlier in the day.
Next we shared a plate of Eric’s fried oysters and without a doubt, I think they are THE BEST FRIED OYSTERS in town! What makes Passport’s oysters so special you may be wondering? Because every single time we go, their fried oysters are fantastically crisp on the outside and sweet-salty fresh oyster perfection on the inside; Passports oysters are never, ever soggy or greasy.
We ALL ordered Eric’s fabulous Lobster Salad Roll and it was divine–big chunks of fresh sweet Captain Joe and Sons succulent lobster meat, surrounded by a lovely array of fresh seasonal veggies (mine is pictured, requested without roll).
Thanks Eric, Lyla, India, and Shawna for welcoming Matt and showing him one of the reasons why we love Gloucester!
On Ladies Night we posted a Vine of Sally making the super delicious Passport’s Sangira. Readers wrote requesting the recipe and here it is, brought to you by Sally!

Recent GMG Post about Passports:
Lunch at Passports is always a treat. Daughter Liv had the very filling and super yummy pulled pork sandwich. I had the wonderfully tasty and seafood-rich Adriatic stew. I only had my iPhone with me and didn’t get a great snapshot of our waitress Laila, but she was wonderful as well. Thanks Laila and Eric for the fabulous lunch!
Passport’s Fresh from the Oven and Always Much-Anticipated Light and Puffy Popovers
My darling daughter Liv and I stopped at Passports for lunch on the way to the train station in Boston. Although brief, it was wonderful to have her home for the holiday. Now 23, when she was a tiny tot she announced Thanksgiving was her favorite holiday, and it continues to be so. Lunch was fantastic; she had the chock-full-of lobster meat Captain Joe’s lobster roll and I had the simply scrumptious shrimp and vegetable saute.

In preparation for the Good Morning Gloucester group photography show at Passports Restaurant (running now through December), I was hoping to work with a fine art printer because I have never been very satisfied with the results from my own limited experience in printing. I recalled having seen a video about Cape Ann Gicléee, created by Alicia for Good Morning Gloucester back in July, and had mentally filed the information for future reference. I first called Anna Eves and she was so helpful over the phone I knew I was heading to the right place.
James Eves was simply fantastic. His background is in fine art, which is apparent in the artistry he brings to his own digital art work. He is an absolute whiz in post production photography techniques and extremely generous with his time.
Stop in and see James and Anna’s studio located at 20 Maplewood Avenue, Gloucester. Cape Ann Giclée is a fabulous resource for all your photography printing and fine art reproduction needs.
James’s Digital Seascape ~ Created entirely on his computer, Not a brush painting.
From Cape Ann Giclée’s website: What is a “Giclée”? A giclee (pronounced – jee-clay) is a fancy term for a print made by a fine art inkjet printer, fine art printers have 6 or more ink colors (ours have 11), use archival inks and the prints are printed on museum quality archival papers and canvas. We use the term “Giclée” to differentiate it from a print made by a commercial printer that does meet the criteria above, like the kind of printers used to make business cards or brochures, those kinds of printers will not produce a “Giclée”. A giclee printer will reliably reproduce color consistently no matter how many prints you print because the print is produced from a digital file that does not degrade over time or use.

This is so rich and hearty and full of flavor. It’s what I eat if I know I’m going to have a tough physical work day ahead.
