Chef Antonio Bettencourt’s first solo venture, 62 Restaurant, has quickly become a Salem favorite for diners-in-the-know who crave all things Italian and handmade. Tucked into a non-descript building off Wharf Street, this spare, comfortable spot offers fresh pastas, thoughtful salads, house-made breads, and all manner of secondi inspired by generous, classic Italian dishes, but updated with modern ingredient combinations. True to its locale, Bettencourt gives special love to seafood preparations, cooking fish to perfection and highlighting the delicate protein with bright flavors and contrasting textures.
