Named a Hidden Jewel by Phantom Gourmet, The Farm Bar & Grille's rustic wood furniture and floors and exposed brick walls inform the eatery's comforting vibe. To craft a menu of comforting Southern-style fare, the kitchen team doesn't skimp by pulling ingredients from the freezer. Instead, they put together entrees from all-fresh components, including some vegetables grown in the onsite garden and the 90-acre cornfield they fit in their endless broom closet. As baby back ribs bask in the smoke from a hardwood fire, the kitchen crew bastes them every half-hour, in between searing burgers made from fresh Angus beef. Starters such as fresh beer-battered jalapeño poppers are made to order. The staff also pours a large selection of draft beers and specialty cocktails.

90 seconds at 900 degrees. That’s how long and how hot owner Tony Naser and his staff at Crush Pizza cook their Naples-style pies, in a wood-fired, Italian-made oven. This Nashua-based trattoria, which opened its doors in 2009, has been recognized by the Phantom Gourmet and the The Boston Globe and been named the "Best of NH 2012" in the Pizzeria category by nhmagazine.com for its made-to-order pizzas topped with artisanal ingredients such as housemade mozzarella, hand-crushed San Marzano tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, and truffle cream. Customers dine on Crush Pizza's specials, including the The Salsiccia, made with red onion and housemade fennel sausage and mozzarella, and the signature Crush Pizza, made of mozzarella de bufala, cherry tomatoes, and truffle oil and topped with baby arugala and prosciutto di parma.

When chefs are not pulling piping hot pizzas from wood-burning ovens, they're marinating chicken wings in a housemade Limoncello sauce, crafting rustic Italian sandwiches, salads, desserts, and serving up craft beers.

For more than 25 years, the maritime enthusiasts at The Lighthouse Preservation Society have worked to maintain the endangered lighthouses of the United States, some more than 200 years old. Their efforts have sponsored National Lighthouse Day, helped create the National Historic Lighthouse Preservation Act and the National Lighthouse Museum, and raised nearly $6 million toward more than 160 lighthouse-restoration projects. Day to day, they lead lighthouse tours and present lighthouse-related presentations, gather historic documents and artifacts, and manufacture replica replacement parts.

They also ignite lighthouse-centered enthusiasm through special events and private dining at the Newburyport Lighthouse. Lauded by Yankee Magazine, the intimate multicourse meals pair sea- and land-focused dishes with views of the town harbor and historic waterfront buildings. The small circular room, nestled at the top of the lighthouse, surrounds diners with padded benches and panoramic windows.
