Tonno, Gloucester 

Standout Qualities: Chef/owner Anthony Caturano is a fisherman himself, and has personal connections with many of the trawlers in Gloucester Harbor. 

What’s unique: Fish sourced locally and prepared with a Continental spin, from delicately smoky octopus “la plancha,” cooked on a special Spanish flat-top grill, to Cod Oreganatta, adding Italian seasonings to a classic baked fish dish.

Insider tip: Don’t overlook the daily crudo offering—built around what is super fresh and seasonal.
