If you’re planning to spend a summer day strolling the streets of Gloucester, head to the Rocky Neck neighborhood to browse the charming art galleries and have a bite at The Rudder. Award-winning chef Barbara Lynch’s newest North Shore outpost that’s perched on the harbor is now serving lunch Thursday through Saturday from 12:00 to 2:30pm, and they happen to have the perfect deck overlooking the water for sipping a cool glass of rosé and slurping a few local oysters, plus there’s an all-new exclusive lunch menu of curated bites to choose from. If you’re having a good time there’s no need to clear out either, because the raw bar keeps going from 3:00 to 5:00pm so you can have another round of shrimp cocktail and beat the heat with a little ocean air. Make a reservation here before heading north, or give them a call at 351.217.1265 to save you a spot.
