BEST of TASTE 2013


From waterfront dining to urban eateries, regional to global cuisine, casual to upscale, we have it all here on the Seacoast when it comes to restaurant options. Plus there are the places we like to go for a cold one, cocktails and wine, or a good cup of coffee, and for sweets, treats, and the freshest produce. Everyone has their favorites, and we asked you to get online and vote, choosing the places you like best on the Seacoast for eats and drinks. The voter turnout was impressive (and overwhelming!). We’ve tallied the numbers and determined the best in over 75 categories, including many new choices, from al fresco dining to comfort food, soup to sushi, martinis, cupcakes, nightlife, gourmet markets, and much more. And now—the Best of Taste 2013!
