Kinda sorta upscale surf and turf place right on the cape, just a block down from Cape Anne Brewing.

The decor is a blend of Asian and white people stuff that would have passed for upscale modernism in 1995--misty blue lights, bamboo made of metal, blue tiles, paper lamps. Pleasant, welcoming.

I don't quite know what they want this place to be, but I don't think the place knows, either. There's a full on, "take off your shoes and sink down into the ground" sushi bar area, but that's offset with regular ol' tables and booths. Likewise, the menu is a strange blend of Japanese and American. Which is fine, obviously, but what I'm getting at is this isn't really a beer bar. It don't consider itself a beer bar. It's a fusion restaurant.

Food was solid but a little bit on the pricey side. I splurged on a kettle (if that's the proper word) of cold sake that came in this stylish little thing where the ice had its own compartment so it didn't water down the booze. Neat attention to detail, but that gives you an idea of where the attention lies here.

There's about a dozen taps, but half of those are taken up Sam Adams and Miller-Coors-Inbev selections. Bottle selection is likewise superficially broad, and it absolutely dwarfed by their wine and sake selection.

So... it's a nice place, if a bit on the pricey side. Not really a beer destination. If you're looking for a place to relax and pound a few brews, go down the street to Cape Anne. If you want a nice place for a date, come to Lat 43.

My wife and I spent a few days in Gloucester this past weekend, and we went to this restaurant twice. On Sat night, we had a few beers over at Cape Ann Brew Pub, then walked down the street to check this place out. There are two parts here: Lat 43 Restaurant, and the Millwood Tavern. The restaurant was dead, but the tavern was hopping. There was a cool live blues band playing, so we grabbed a few seats in the back. Cool place here. Bar in the middle, seats along the edge, small kitchen in the back. Great beer selection here. All the locals, like Cape Ann, Harpoon, Ipswich, Notch, Wachusett plus others like Sixpoint. I had a Victory Golden Monkey ($7) served in a Duvel glass. Great place for a band and a beer. Next day, we came back here to eat lunch at Lat 43. Very cool place inside. There's a lounge area, fireplace, sushi bar, plus a lot of outdoor seating along the water, where we went. Our waiter was very courteous and food came fast. Decent beer selection, not as good as Millwood, but OK. They had Cape Ann, a few locals, and Lagunitas. My wife had a lobster roll, and I had a fried clam roll and a Cape Ann Ale. Food prices were a bit high, but you pay for location and service. Millwood Tavern is a great spot for a few beers, and Lat 43 is a great spot for an outdoors meal and a beer.
