Toasting the Sixty 2 on Wharf.

Around our table: Dick & Diane Pabich of the Salem Inn, Ada May Roberts of the Amelia Payson House, Gillian Zed/Sixty 2 on Wharf Marketing Manager, John Brick of the Stepping Stone Inn and Mary & David Rooney of Capt. Jacks.

Celebrating their 2nd anniversary in Salem, Sixty 2 on Wharf Restaurant at Pickering Wharf hosted area innkeepers to a four course dining experience that showcased many of the authentic and original dishes available on their menu, and accompanied by especially chosen wines to match the distinctive cuisine. Owner and Chef, Antonio Bettencourt's passion for cooking was sparked while working alongside his mother preparing the nightly meal and holiday dinners. Family trips to Brazil illustrated to Tony the intrinsic relationship between culture, geography and food. The flavors, colors and aromas were things he had never experienced before and they left a lasting impression on the emerging chef........and now it is a family affair, where both he and his wife Valerie combine their talents in offering Salem diners a special place in a modern Italian restaurant. Tony and his team hand craft each item in house from bread to pasta to the cured meats on the small bites menu.
Great fun. Bellisimo and Grazie!
