Written by Andrea Simons. Posted in Daily, Food

In our September/October edition of Scout Cambridge we mourned the loss of the Veggie Planet in Harvard Square that closed in August after 13 years of business. Fear not: There may be hope for the restaurant that brought us dairy- and meat-free pizzas and vegan desserts. A former customer has approached the restaurant about opening Veggie Planet in a brand new location. The next step is to decide where that location will be, and you get to help choose! Fill out this survey if you want a say in Veggie Planet’s potential new location.

In this latest installment, we’re taking you to Newburyport – coastal city chock-full of history and culture, located 35 miles northeast of Boston near the NH border. While it has a bit of Somerville charm, it’s the perfect spot for a quick, affordable change of scenery for the whole family.

What many may not know is that this reservation is critical to the ecosystem of the area. And now, that ecosystem is in jeopardy.
