2023 New Restaurant

Editors’ Choice

Fleur Cuisine Harborside, Rockport

Alva and Wanddy Lafleur’s beautiful spot melds the New England cuisine of their home with childhood roots in Haiti, yielding a menu of bold flavors. Think clam chowder with a kick of heat, an indulgent Pan-Seared Sea Bass, and the Fiesta Pineapple Bowl—a half pineapple filled with spicy-sweet fried rice, roasted corn, peppers, tomatoes, and creole-influenced seasoning. The décor boasts a carefree Miami vibe, and a wraparound patio welcomes guests year-round. The cocktail program is on-point—don’t miss the Hurricane, served in a hollowed-out pineapple—and desserts are made in house: We’d recommend the fluffy, rich rum cake, served warm with vanilla ice cream and an extra splash of Haitian rum. 1 T-Wharf, Rockport, 978- 309-5199,

Readers’ Choice 

Oak to Ember, Gloucester

Open-flame cooking is the centerpiece of chef/owner Neal Maver’s cuisine—and his kitchen. A custom-built wood-fueled grill dominates the large open kitchen, and the restaurant also boasts two wood-fired smokers outside, perfuming the air as they cure the bacon, brisket burgers, chicken, Dino ribs, and anything else that might be tasty. 9 Rogers St., Gloucester, 978-289-5859,
