Restaurants in Massachusetts

Fried clams are nowhere better than on Massachusetts’ North Shore, where chowder, oysters, and lobster also are menu highlights. Be on the lookout for roast beef sandwiches – a north-of-Boston obsession – that are veritable red-meat bouquets. The Boston area is rightfully famous for its world-class ice cream, as well as for superb old-world pizza; and the southern shore, around Fall River, has an Italian/Portuguese cuisine all its own as well as a bizarre, utterly local specialty, the chow mein sandwich. In western Massachusetts, look for sugar shacks, farm stands, and a bevy of good hot dog joints.
