Tartine, Beverly

What’s Unique: European style meets local ingredients. An open-face sandwich of smoked salmon on A&J King bread, served with a side of addictive fresh greens, lightly dressed, feels like a vacation across the pond.

What’s new: Look for special events, from a celebration of Belgian Independence Day to tastings with Belgian beer company Duvel.

Insider tip: Alexandre Simon, who owns the restaurant with wife Monika, has deep connections with Illy Coffee and Duvel Brewery, giving him special access to these sought-after European brands.
