This is not pizza, but flatbread – wheat-flour dough topped with cheeses, herbs, vegetables and ingredients such as homemade sausage and nitrate-free pepperoni. Kids love the activity around the wood-fired oven. Flatbread Co. is located right on the working waterfront. It has a great deck where, in good weather, you can eat outside and watch the harbor activity. There is a full bar as well, with a good selection of local beer on tap. Why it's a staff pick: It's a happy, community-minded place - you can't eat here and not smile. The staff is patient and friendly, there's a great tap line-up at the bar and it's always hard to choose among the flatbreads - they are all delicious. — Susan Axelrod
