2020 Cocktail
Editors’ Choice




With its wood-plank floors, warm brick walls, and long Carrara marble bar, Brine has a menu of cocktails that are as tasty and carefully crafted as the crudo, oysters, and market-driven mains you can enjoy with them. In response to COVID-19, Brine moved into Ceia Kitchen + Bar’s space (25 State St., Newburyport, 978-358-8479), which now has 32 outside spots along Threadneedle Alley. Also, Brine has fed over 1,400 nurses in the Newport and Boston areas.
