Any suggestions for a food-focused NYE? I'm not sure if we would prefer prix fixe or ala carte...I know we want to avoid the city!

      I think it's New Years Eve?

      Last year we went to Joseph's Trattoria in Haverhill and had a great meal,,,made reservations again for this year.

      NYE = New Years Eve

        I love Joseph's...but we go there pretty often. We are looking at L'Andana in Burlington or Gaven's in Middleton.

          I'want to check out L'Andana too....I haven't been to Gavin's in a while, but that would be a good option too for NYE.

            Hopefully it's not too late, but Gaven's can be a tough reservation at times.
            An excellent alternative Steakhouse would be Pellana further east on RT114 in Peabody.
            I work in Middleton and have been to both on numerous occasions with clients. I would have no reservations (sorry) going to either one of them.

            P.S. I also love Joseph's Trattoria, BTW!
