Yella on the Water – Gloucester Harbor view from the new deck

Yella on the Water joins a fantastic line up of seasonal plein air dining options in Gloucester. The inviting new outdoor space and decor of Danielle and Carlo Berdahn’s  Mediterranean bistro, Yella on the Water, in the former Morning Glory space on Western Avenue (Stacy Boulevard), beckons on any given sun day. The interior is equally alluring. Owner Danielle Berdahn enlisted some design help from Taniya Nayak and the snappy casual vibe is perfect.

Woburn native, Berdahn has a personal connection to Gloucester. She grew up spending magical summers on Wingaersheek at her family’s beach house. After hearing that fun fact, it’s easy to order the “Wingaersheek” cocktail. We had one brief hour between work and appointments to sample hand crafted appetizers (Hummus Awarma) and spirits.  Were we on vacation? A day-cation for sure, thanks to impeccable service and yummy local fare on a hot new deck with a view of Gloucester Harbor.

Salt Water Grille for Dinner

We stopped at the new Salt Water Grille for dinner over the weekend and were pretty happy we did. It’s in the old Friendly ‘s building so there’s plenty of room inside for seating diners. The bar area is expansive and comfortable. In fact, I would say the vibe is “casual comfortable “. Our waitress Abby told us there are daily specials and that they are open for lunch. We had chowder, fish and Buffalo Tenders (which were perfectly tender). Thanks Abby!
