My friends and I go to Cape Ann every year about this time, and we typically hit a few favorite spots: Roy Moore, Captain Carlos, Passports, Lee's, and sometimes Sugar Magnolia's. One place we always visit for a big dinner is Alchemy, which has gotten surprisingly excellent. Sadly, they're closed for renovations.
The Alchemy folks recommended Latitude 43 and called it their "sister restaurant", but their menu looks sort of generic and expensive, and the last reviews of the place were from 5 yrs ago and called it mediocre. Anyone been lately?
I know there's lots of love for Duckworth and Franklin, but we're a bit budget-conscious... any other thoughts?
