Have you been to Newburyport yet? If not, you need to win this brunch, immediately. If you have, you know you want to win this brunch immediately!
This ocean-side town may be one of my favorite day trips in New England. Besides being water-front, this town has a quaint charm that is different from anywhere else in Massachusetts. Independent shops, fabulous street festivals, and an abundant amount of restaurants make it the perfect way to spend a day.
Nestled in the heart of Downtown Newburyport is Ceia Kitchen & Bar. At Ceia they’ve updated the casual dining experience with a sophisticated menu that is friendly and still grown-up.
Executive Chef Brando applies techniques from his classical Cordon Bleu training in creating new interpretations of the most pleasing and familiar flavors of coastal Spain, France, Italy and Portugal. ‘Locavores’ will appreciate the stories he can tell about our preferred New England food sources.
The Newburyport restaurant just celebrated its one year anniversary in December. Boston Magazine declared Ceia KItchen + Bar the Best Romantic venue on the North Shore and the Boston Globe said its one of the best new restaurants of 2011. Ceia Kitchen + Bar has accumulated six awards in the past year. AND it’s the only early morning brunch venue in Newburyport…so why wouldn’t the brunchers make their way here?
