Vasa Restaurant Salisbury MA

Vasa is the new waterfront restaurant in Salisbury MA just across the Merrimack River from Newburyport.

I met with owner Sean Toomey and head chef T. J. Bernard and did some views of their Savory Mussel bowl, Boston Strip Steak with Roasted Potatoes and Oyster Mushrooms, plus the Vasa Wings with Spicy Honey Garlic Glaze. When you get there you can start you meal with their specialty drink “A Shore Thing”.
