Dom's Sausage was founded in 1936 by two men who dreamt of making the most superb sweet Italian sausage. Since then, the shop has perfected premium blends of hot, sweet, fennel, and oriental links and expanded its selection to include uncased meat (such as steaks, roasts, and fresh veal), deli sandwiches and meats, and oven-ready meals. The shop is known for its marinated meats, especially the sirloin tips soaked in Dom's own stealthy, yet transparently tasty, marinade. Assemble a sandwich from authentic Austrian swiss ($5.99 per lb.) and honey ham ($7.69 per lb.), or request a pre-made hot pastrami ($6 for a large) or pepper-and-egg sandwich ($5 for a large).
Year-round tutoring services are led by certified teachers and offer educational assistance to all age groups from four to adult. Choose semi-private tutoring ($15/hour) to attend a small group instruction, a private tutoring session ($20/hour) for a more focused, one-on-one approach, or request a free upgrade for in-home private tutoring (normally $25/hour, $20/hour for Groupon holders). Whether you're looking to catch up with peers or go beyond the learning curve, tutoring services create a personalized approach to educational success.
Wedging rich deli meats and cheeses between 13 types of bread, the helpful staff at Gloria Food Store curbs appetites with a menu of sandwiches, burgers, and gourmet Italian specialties. Behind the deli counter, staffers assemble the turkey carver sandwich ($6), which preempts regularly scheduled Thanksgiving with roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy atop marble rye. In addition to nestling hot and cold deli meats inside rolls, wraps, and focaccia, the staff mixes up greens, protein, and veggies in gourmet salads such as the ginger-chicken salad with noodles and mango salsa ($8.50). Dinner platters such as meatloaf or roast pork ($9) fend off hunger with foot soldiers of bread and butter, vegetables or coleslaw, and your choice of rice pilaf, french fries, or mashed potatoes.
With black-and-white checkerboard floors, fire-engine red booths, and vintage aluminum signage advertising quirky slogans, The Medford Square Diner cuts a decidedly classic-diner profile. But there's also abstract art and new furnishings that add a touch of modernity. This duality between classic and modern is reflected in the menu as well. Classic diner dishes come with little gourmet twists?think avocado, pear, and goat cheese omelets, brioche french toast, or mascarpone pancakes. The classics are well-represented too in meals like the Lumber Jack with pancakes, bacon, sausage, and eggs. The lunch and dinner menu follows suit; cooks dish out burgers, paninis, pasta dishes, and wraps. There's also a daily buffet and a full kids menu to keep little ones from getting cranky and filling up on their own tears.
“The Lamplighter has sampled lobster bisque and chowders from Rhode Island to Maine,” the Haverhill Gazette column The Lamp Post commented in 2012, “but has tasted none better than those at…the Pine River fish market.” Family owned and operated for more than 20 years, Pine River Fish Market earns such accolades by reliably supplying customers with fresh fish and shellfish, groceries, bisques and chowders, and live lobsters and crabs. In the store, maritime dwellers such as haddock, swordfish, conch, shrimp, steamers, and cherrystones—all of which are delivered daily—sit on ice, awaiting the day they’re thawed and can experience a strange new future world. The helpful staffers can also special order any in-season fish and have it ready for pickup the next day.
