Teresa’s Prime, North Reading 

Request a cozy banquette near the fireplace at this Italian-style steakhouse and share the Bacon appetizer to start. The triple-thick slabs of pork belly, slow cooked to melty, smoky deliciousness, then seared fast in a Maker’s Mark Bourbon glaze and topped with Luxardo cherries, is a sexy, meaty Old Fashioned cocktail on a plate. From there, enjoy full-on steakhouse selections, alongside house-made pasta and plenty of fish offerings. We especially like the Shrimp Scampi: fresh light fusilli pasta, made in house daily, tossed with a subtly buttery lemon-garlic-wine sauce and spinach, then topped with crazy large shrimp. Take a stroll around the lovely grounds to finish off your evening. 20 Elm St. (Rte. 62), N. Reading, 978-276-0044,
