Magia, Danvers

Chef Richard Travaglione Jr. has been working in Boston’s North End since he was 19 and owns two restaurants there. He uses those deep connections to source the high-quality ingredients and craft perfect dishes for Magia. We love the Frutti di Mare—a beguiling plate with a half lobster, freshly cooked, joined by a mix of clams, mussels, calamari, and shrimp, each added to a clam purée in a light fresh pomodoro sauce at exactly the right moment to ensure nothing is overdone. Other can’t-miss meals include Risotto Riccardo, featuring spinach, shiitake mushrooms, and fresh cherry tomatoes; Butternut Squash Ravioli, served with asparagus and prosciutto in a mascarpone cream sauce; and the majestic Veal Chop Milanese, lightly breaded and served in a lemon caper sauce over greens. 126 Newbury St. (Rte. 1), Danvers, 978-777-1266,
