Need suggestions for dinner

Too hot to cook. Need someplace quick and light not dressy at all within walking distance of the tannery. Or should we just get take-out? But from where?

We ended up sitting at the bar at Oregano. Good food, bad service, but entertaining (waitstaff arguing with the bartender). Left a 30% tip.

Okay..I've been by there but not tried it...pizza place..right..? Oh boy...staff "disputes" are always entertaining...but if I were the waitstaff I probably would not be arguing with the bartender..! Did you leave the 30 % based on the entertainment..?

We've been to Oregano a few times - unfortunately because it is a "pizza place" families like to bring their small children there - it's not that I don't like small children, but it really isn't that kind of restaurant. Anyway, the owners are lebanese (I remember reading) and I was struck this time by how much more Lebanese influence there is on the menu. We had a couscous salad that was really good (it is called the "oregano salad") and a Ricotta Napoletana pizza with ricotta and prosciutto that was really good. I tend to be a big tipper especially since my son worked as a waiter...

Wow...that actually sounds pretty good...I like couscous and it's not something you see served in a lot of restaurants. I understand about the tipping thing..I was a waitress for years so I am a great tipper as well. I may have to put Oregano's on my to do list the next time I am in Newburyport..which I am sure will be at least once during Yankee Homecoming...
