After seven months of renovations, the Black Cow Tap and Grill reopened this week with a bevy of changes.
A newly renovated Black Cow Tap and Grill has reopened in downtown Hamilton, with a new menu "They layout is unbelievable," said general manager Nicole Ananian, who said customers have "literally stopped in their tracks" in the five days since it reopened. Owner Joe Leone said Black Cow has been in its Bay Road location for 18 years without any major changes. "We're going to do it for another 18 years," Leone said. "This is the new Cow."

The Black Cow restaurant will be closed until September to undergo renovations that will make it brighter and lighter.

No new seats will be added. Leone said he had hoped to reopen sooner than September except that he has to wait until the July 11 Zoning Board of Appeals meeting for it to hear …

This week's Facebook poll asked readers to chime in and say which type of restaurant should be added to the culinary options in the two towns.
An Indian restaurant would be a great addition to the dining options in the two towns, according to respondents in Hamilton-Wenham Patch’s unscientific Facebook poll.

This week's North Shore Nibbles looks around the North Shore at options to eat outside at various restaurants.
This week, North Shore Bites takes a look around the region at some of the outside dining options – whether it a deck or patio. Shea's Riverside in Essex has an exquisite view of the Essex River and Crane Beach, according to Manager Jane Sullivan. "It's one of the best views around," Sullivan said about the deck area the restaurant uses. There's seven tables and diners can also dock their boats instead of driving to the restaurant. The busiest time for the restaurant is during lunch hours and evenings when the temperature has cooled down. If you're in the mood for something different, Woodman's in Essex has got you covered, literally. Woodman's offers customers the chance to sit underneath a tent if the sun is too powerful.
