Guests can expect the very best ingredients in this week’s tasting menu dishes prepared by Chef Matt O’Neil. The beautiful Cape Ann views and live entertainment are just an added bonus onboard this memorable Beauport Cruiselines 3-hour excursion.
The Restaurant: Ledger and The Blue Ox
Ledger is located in the former Salem Savings Bank building, circa 1818, in downtown Salem. This historically unique location houses a progressive New England concept, where traditional 19th-century dishes, cocktails, and techniques will be elevated with 21st-century resources.
Having garnered many prestigious awards since its opening, The Blue Ox , an upscale casual American restaurant, offers traditional dishes in a nontraditional way. The menu items are sourced from premium ingredients from the top purveyors in the area and a unique wine and cocktail list boast small production wines and local spirits all at a great value to guests.
