1606 Restaurant & Lounge, Gloucester

Floor-to-ceiling windows at this vibrant spot make Gloucester Harbor the center of attention. Every table boasts a view—or take in the sea breezes from the stylish deck, where heaters and tabletop firepits take the chill off no matter the season. Gloucester native chef Jon McKechnie oversees a menu of Modern American cuisine that emphasizes the local bounty of the sea through dishes like seasonal crudo, Baked Haddock Casserole, and Lobster Linguine. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 1606 is the one of the few places on the North Shore where you can enjoy oceanfront dining all day long. 55 Commercial St., Gloucester, 978-282-0008 Ext. 2,
