2023 Raw Bar

Editors’ Choice

Brine, Newburyport 

The restaurant’s new “Seacuterie” boards feature smoked tuna dip, fried anchovies, and tinned sardines alongside mustard and pita bread. But we like the “Overboard,” which combines those cooked items with a more classic raw bar seafood tower, adding on six fresh-shucked oysters, four littleneck clams, two jumbo shrimp, and a half order of crudo. Gild the lily with the caviar add-on, available by the taste or the half ounce. Pair your selection from something from owner Nancy Batista-Caswell’s always impressive wine list—look for some exciting new offerings from Portugal that are perfect with shellfish. 17 State St., Newburyport, 978-358-8479,
