Yella, Andover 

What’s Unique: Owners Carlo Berdahn and his wife, Danielle, have a strong focus on giving back to the community, and are engaged with a number of local nonprofits, including offering dedicated mentoring opportunities focusing on work skills training and one-on-one guidance to the TOPs program for young individuals with special needs looking to gain workplace experience.

Insider tip: Order the Pan-Seared Cod Tenderloin, rubbed with za’atar, a Middle Eastern blend of herbs, salt, and sesame seeds, and served with a sautéed pepper trio, grilled asparagus, julienned kalamata olives, and parsnip purée; it is a harmonious blend of the best of New England and the best of Lebanon.

Fun fact: Their za’atar is imported directly from Lebanon from a man known as “the spice doctor.”
