Cav

Asian-fusion restaurant and lounge

The 12-table restaurant is named after the original owner's black Lab. The bar buzzes after dark in this low-lit gray clapboarad cottage, decorated with paintings by local artists. Come for the seafood dishes such as steamed crab and Maine lobster over fresh casarecce pasta.

A landmark, this humble shop has been standing since 1927 and continues to serve its trademark grilled tube steaks (also known as gaggers) to an adoring public. The dogs, distinguished by their squared-off edges, are doused with meat sauce; chopped, raw onions; mustard; and celery salt.
