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.

"we really enjoyed the new menu options they released that night. While there were no specials there was still enough options. Tried the Lamb Tartar, Foie Gras, Salt Cod for Apps and dinner the Rack of Lamb ( so good) and the Scallops Artichokes. When we travel out of Boston this is always our go to. Service is great - sat on third floor. only complaint .. the water in Newburyport."

"Enjoyed our meal for what it was. Felt like it lacked imagination. It was very busy so it could have been an off night but temperature of food was cool- cold."

"the winelist is great and very reasonably priced. Tried the Spanish red on special and thought it went nicely with the pasta special a pasta with pork sausage. Enjoyed the lamb carpaccio, pasta, char and hanger steak. We learned there was a transition in kitchen so it was nice to hear their was a promotion. I always enjoy my time here - service was great. for the first time owner wasn't present."

Myers + Chang is a funky indie diner setting offering Chef/Owner Joanne Chang and Christopher Myers's very personal interpretation of Chinese, Taiwanese, Thai, and Vietnamese specialties. At Myers + Chang, we focus on sourcing fresh, beautiful, local-when-possible ingredients, using lighter sauces, and giving you either fun and innovative takes on classic dishes, or creating new dishes that stay true to the flavors of the region.<br /><br><br><br />We are inspired by Taiwanese soul food and Southeast Asian street food, all done with a great deal of care. It is a personal, sometimes loose interpretation, to be sure, but our criteria are simple: everything we make must be fresh, delicious, and addictive. We are passionate about sharing our love of this food with you.
