We just moved from the North End to North Andover and desperately need help finding anything/everything chow worthy within a 20 minute or so drive.
What I've found so far...
Burtons..mediocre food a bit overpriced.
Smolaks..great cider donuts,produce, and other baked goods
Butcher Boy..great meats and prepared foods
Tripoli..ok bakery with decent bakery pizza
Harrisons..serviceable North Shore roast beef
Brasserie 28....nice wine bar, haven't tried any food yet.
Yella...intersesting menu, some items executed better than others, nice dining room
Andover Liquors..best beer section in the area
The little seafood market..good quality fresh fish
Keons...great pork chop in a bar like setting
Haverhill brewing..good beer, decent pub grub
Any other help will be greatly appreciated.
