Too late to help this guy, but yesterday we were in Marblehead to celebrate 100 years of Marine Corps aviation, which started in Marblehead harbor. Three modern helicopters were displayed on an athletic field along with a foundation owned, vintage CH-34, that will soon be in the Marine Corps museum in Virginia.
We ate at “The Landing”, a waterfront, pub type place next to the town parking lot. We all ordered “The Big Kahuna”, which turned out to be like a crab cake on a roll (but no crab, it was scallop, lobster, and shrimp). Good to excellent. Wonderful service, great view, and not too expensive, considering the waterfront location.
We recently tried Vesuvius Pizza, a little independent place that seems to be doing very well in Marblehead. Very, very good. There are lots of great pizza places in Massachusetts, and this place is right up there with the best.
