Duckworth’s Bistrot

bons 2016 dine winner


Tucked away in an 1850s-era house on East Main in Gloucester, Duckworth’s Bistrot offers an intimate dining experience that captures the essence and flavors of Cape Ann. The dining room is cozy, with bistro tables with fresh flowers and votives—setting the mood for romance. Chef-owner Ken Duckworth creates memorable dishes using fresh local ingredients. In fact, wholesaler Captain Joe & Sons, located around the corner from the restaurant, provides Duckworth with lobsters. If you have a special occasion coming up, book early—it’s hard to get a reservation on the weekends.
