Where laughter is required. Jacket & tie are not. Going out with friends or a special someone means choosing a neighborly place that feels as comfortable as home, where conversation flows as easily as a smooth cabernet. Welcome to Ceia Kitchen + Bar. A new kind of nightlife in the heart of Downtown Newburyport, introducing this area"s first extended kitchen hours for later night dining or tête-à-tête cocktails with flavorful small plates. Our exposed brick interior with mellow lighting, cozy banquets and featured cocktail bar beckon even impromptu visits to this reliable neighborly eatery where singles, dates and a posse of good friends are assured of a comfortable night out with delicious food and great company. The spirit of Ceia (pr. SAY-yah) is in the translation of our name: "supper" in Portuguese, the language of one country included among the inspiring stops of our coastal European culinary repertoire.

"Having changed chefs I was expecting a couple hiccups from what is our normal smooth easy evenings here. But the new chef is spectacular- we had the hanger steak in a Portuguese setup, the lamb pasta packed with flavor. Appetizers we had the cauliflower, scallop and octopus dish all yummy. no room for dessert. The server was knowledgable- she was new and delightful. We had a bottle of Spanish wine she picked for the main course. It was busy and the experience was great. No question Ceia belongs in a big city."

B&G Oysters is a modern yet classic take on the oyster bar. Located in Boston's South End, B&G Oysters has a decidedly neighborhood feel, combining polished but friendly service with fantastically fresh seafood dishes and food-friendly wines. B&G Oysters has received many accolades over the years for its cuisine and wine program including "Best Seafood" in 2007 and 2008 by Boston Magazine. <br /><br />This subterranean spot draws energy from its open kitchen which is surrounded by a white marble bar. In warmer weather, enjoy drinks and more on the stone patio; a favorite outdoor dining spot in the city. Please note that all reservations are for the interior of the restaurant. Our patio is available solely on a walk-in basis.

"I have been a huge fan of the space and food at BG oyster. I am disappointed in the food quality as of late. the lobster roll was so small. bread soggy, oysters were butchered. Server had a slight attitude - hoping it was a long night the night before that lunch was suffering."
