2018 Bacon

Editors’ Choice (Tie)

Teresa’s Prime, North Reading What’s Unique: It’s not often bacon turns up on menus as a standalone appetizer, but this ranks top billing—three slabs of bacon, slow-cooked and melty on the inside, seared with a sweet bourbon glaze on the outside. Insider Tip: Teresa’s looks like a private club because that’s what it used to be. Now it’s open to anyone who loves great food. 20 Elm St. (Rte. 62), North Reading, 978-276-0044,   Rusty Can, Byfield Standout Qualities: Owner James “Sully” Sullivan cures his own pork belly and then cooks it confit-style, low and slow in its own fat, before searing to order on the grill. Insider Tip: The BLT is crave-worthy, stacked with thick bacon and full-sour pickles. 6 Fruit St., Byfield, 978-462-1204,
