Step one to prepare for upcoming storm: a visit to the Azorean for dinner. Shout out to our server Ryan. Ryan moved to Gloucester from Portugal and he did a great job with his recommendations. The Bife Escondidinho was awesome! Loved the creamy mustard sauce. BONUS we saw our friend Melissa Cox!
We stopped at the Azorean late one afternoon specifically so that I could try one of their winter cocktails. I highly recommend the Winter White! Can’t really beat Portuguese soup and pizza. And, of course the bread……which disappeared too fast for a picture.
