The Poynt

As you enter The Poynt in downtown Newburyport, your eyes will be drawn to the 360-degree bar in the center of the room. Rolling pins line a wall next to the pizza oven and cooks dance around one another in an open kitchen. Proprietors John and Laura Wolfe, who also own Brick & Ash in Newburyport, as well as more restaurants in Massachusetts and California, incorporated design elements to honor John Farley Clothiers, which formerly occupied the space. The backs of booths are upholstered with fabric used for men’s shirts and the old brick leading into a private dining area, The Wolfe’s Den, remains lettered with Farley’s legacy.

Spotlight on Ogunquit, Maine

In Featured Restaurants By Jessica Sacco / July 2018

As one of New England’s premier coastal towns, Ogunquit brings together the best of land and sea. Beach lovers have access to a huge stretch of sandy shores. Walk along Marginal Way, a paved footpath that connects Perkins Cove—with its boutique shops, alfresco dining, and beautiful views of the colorful ships anchored in the harbor—to Ogunquit Beach. The welcoming community is filled with charm and offers a little of everything for visitors who’ve traveled near and far in search of the perfect getaway spot.

When you come to the 180 Restaurant & Bar, expect to be treated like family. Owners Brendon MacMahon and Graham Pellerin opened the eatery in 2009 and crafted a menu featuring only the types of dishes they’d want to serve to their loved ones. The North Hampton spot is cozy and casual—a great place to relax for lunch.
