Though he’s catered for Oprah and won Steven Tyler over with his meatballs, Lou Marzelli can still take the time to fill a family table. Dishes of lasagna, chicken parmesan, and penne in housemade marinara come to fruition out of recipes handed down through the Marzellis’ Italian-native family every day in their New York–style deli. A gleaming deli case brims with Boar's Head meats and cheeses ready to be sliced and stuffed into hearty wedge sandwiches. whereas pizzas proudly hold toppings such as genoa salami, fresh basil, or the crumbled remains of lesser pies. Breakfast selections are served all day alongside locally roasted espresso drinks, and 36 flavors of housemade gelato and sorbetto—such as stracciatella, strawberry, and tiramisu—put a sweet finish on Italian helpings.

For nine years running, New England Brewfest has assembled a coterie of craft breweries to get more than 100 taps flowing with their unique creations. This year, the event includes 30 breweries, and each of them will treat every guest through the gates with complimentary samples of small-batch beverages and reasonably priced high-fives. Exhibitors range from Magic Hat and Peak Organic Brewing Company to Angry Orchard Hard Cider and Twisted Tea. You can also take in brewing demonstrations and learn about the creation of items such as beer-infused jelly.
Organizers require that guests present ID at the entrance, and recommend bringing a folding chair and comfortable dancing shoes. These items come in handy when absorbing the sweet rhythms of live music acts such as the Rustic Overtones and Air Traffic Controller.
The original owner of the picturesque two-story house—a daffodil-hued farmhouse with hunter-green shutters and a matching front door—invited guests into his makeshift tavern for a bowl of porridge and a nap at 12 cents a pop. More than 220 years later, the house in Bristol still entertains a revolving door of guests as The Homestead Restaurant. Inside, a brick fireplace radiates warmth across tables scattered with teriyaki-glazed steaks and alaskan king-crab legs dipped in drawn butter. The chefs also swaddle meatloaf wellington in a puff-pastry shell, and peppercorns burst sharply across sirloin with brandy and cream sauce. A dedicated gluten-free menu caters to diners with health issues or a tendency to remember the terrifying dinner-roll scene in Jaws.
A second location of The Homestead Restaurant in Merrimack is just as inviting inside with exposed wooden beams, an antlered chandelier, and a second-floor bar affording a perfect eagle’s-eye view of the tables below.
At Fratello’s, a wood-fired brick oven bakes bubbles into pizza dough as chefs sauté shrimp with fresh garlic, butter, and white wine. Aside from serving nine varietals of pizza, the 16,000-square-foot restaurant stays busy cooking up the hearty sandwiches, pasta dishes, and antipasto that fill their menu of casual Italian eats. Connected to the restaurant is an event facility, where Fratello’s caters events such as weddings, holiday parties, and baby’s-first-burp celebrations.
Wraparound wooden booths and brick columns create a cozy atmosphere at The Hole In The Hill Bar And Grill. Once they are seated in comfort, customers can tuck into a fried-haddock sandwich with a basket of onion rings or a Genius burger topped with sweet chili sauce, jalapeños, and avocado. A selection of Mexican dishes brings spicy flavor with quesadillas, tacos, and shrimp, chicken, and steak burritos.
