Michael's Market is part deli, part restaurant, and part catering company. That means that sometimes customers visit one of its two locations to lunch on crabmeat salad on focaccia bread or chicken cordon bleu on a baguette, and sometimes they pop in just to pick up some fresh marinated meats. If patrons are hosting a morning meeting or a business lunch, they also can pick out a platter of stuffed finger sandwiches or pastries from the corporate menu so attendees won't start gnawing on their laptop power cords for sustenance. The catering menu is full of variety: chefs can prepare a platter of hand-rolled swedish meatballs, a tray of lasagna with house marinara, or a spread of seafood au gratin—baked shrimp, scallops, lobster, and shrimp pieces with cheese and Ritz Crackers crumbs.
The professional caterers at Bentley's Famous BBQ Pig Roast & Lobstah Bakes travel throughout Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire, leaving the aromas of wood-smoked and steamed lobsters in their wake. They swoop in on events with steamers, table settings, and shuck buckets in hand?and while they usually prepare everything in advance, they also prepare entire spreads on-site. Such is the case with eight-hour whole pig roasts, where all the action revolves around an American-made smoker fittingly dubbed "The Green Monstah." Throughout the day, a traditional brined or Mojo Mojo-style whole pig?roasted in garlic, onions, and citrus?is slow-smoked and then carved fresh and paired with classic Southern sides. The smoker also churns out Bentley's signature barbecue, using applewood and hickory to smoke dry-rubbed beef, pork, and poultry. Alternatively, seafood is the focus of the lobster and clam bakes, which include spreads of steamed hard or soft-shell Maine lobsters and ale-steamed Ipswich clams alongside marinated meats.

The caf??s special vegetarian or non-vegetarian dinners for two feed duos, with entrees complemented with samosas, soups, fresh-baked naan, and basmati rice. Cocktails from the full bar wash down meals and bring out long-forgotten Bollywood dance routines as diners relax in the dining area, painted in warm hues of yellow, orange, and red.
