Alchemy News


Dear Joey,

There’s nothing that says "weekend" like a relaxing brunch. The only thing better is if someone else cooks it! At Alchemy we are cooking up a savory brunch that can be enjoyed while relaxing on our couches and armchairs while reading the paper or listening to bluegrass music. In fact our Bluegrass Sunday brunch has become so popular that we’ve added a Saturday Celtic brunch 11-2. We think we have the best tasting brunch around, we know we have the best sounding one.  … and we have a full bar license and no lines!  Brunch starts at 10:30, the music goes on at 11.

Lots of people are calling themselves "foodies" these days. Lots of people think they have to go to Boston for serious culinary adventure. Not anymore. Check out our monthly "Foodie Nights."

We hope to see you soon,


An invitation from Alchemy’s owner, Mark McDonough…

Foodie Nights at Alchemy

Have you ever wished for a monthly dinner party where our local foodies pull out all the stops for a fabulous night of food and drink? I have. My chefs have. Every now and then they need to spread their culinary wings and create food beyond the standard fare – even if it is as wonderful as Alchemy fare.

So we’re going to start our own foodie dinner party on the first Monday of every month in the back room of Alchemy. We’ll create a five course tasting menu with about seven different wine and beer pairings. It’s a tasting dinner so three of the courses will have three items each – three apps, three entrees and three desserts.

We did a test run of this tasting dinner for the North Shore food bloggers in January. Here are their glowing reports:

The cost is $50 for the dinner and $3 for each beverage you choose from our flight of mini-glasses chosen to pair with each course.  This is truly a "first come, first served" event. The first 14 people to secure a $50 prepaid reservation will have a spot at the table. 

To make your reservation for Mar 7 at 6PM, please call Alchemy 978-281-3997 and indicate if you want to be seated at the family style table or the individual servings table.  We’ll do our best to accommodate your preference.

Please send this on to all your foodie friends. We need your help to create a monthly dinner party for North Shore foodies.
