Periwinkles of Essex

Periwinkles of Essex is steeped in shipbuilding culture, from its views of boats passing by on the Essex River, to the hanging gas lanterns that light the dining room, to the local sea-centric artwork displayed at the onsite gallery. The theme is fitting, since Periwinkles sits on land that was a wooden shipbuilding hub for nearly 300 years. The building itself fits right into the nautical theme, with its weathered clapboard siding and bright, whitewashed interior.

Diners can enjoy the picturesque river views two ways. They can grab a seat inside the dining room, which is lined on two sides by large picture windows. Or they can venture out to the wooden deck for a waterfront dining experience, and people-watch as clammers, kayakers, and boaters dock right outside.

Customers might first visit for the views, but it's the food that keeps them coming back. Periwinkles' clam chowder is a 14-time winner of the Essex Clamfest, and the only chowder to have ever won the People's Choice and Judges' Choice awards in the same year. All the seafood is local, and includes seasonal specials such as lobster and swordfish. Diners can start meals with the warm salad, which eschews traditional greens for sautéed veggies, chicken, pine nuts, and grilled shrimp. Beyond seafood, the menu features grilled steak tips served with mashed potatoes, or chicken breast and ziti tossed in a light chicken-parmesan broth.
