Michael Buckley




Chef/owner on a Roll Michael Buckley, 43, vowed to have his own restaurant by the time he was 30. He accomplished that with the opening of Michael Timothy’s Bistro and Jazz Bar in 1996 and then he went on to open Surf across the street in 2003 and most recently Buckley’s Great Steaks. Now, there are other restaurateurs with three or more restaurants, but Buckley is often at the pass or even on the line when necessary, running between venues. His commitment to quality has earned all three high praise while his love of fine wine has brought awards from the Wine Spectator. A full schedule of entertainment makes MT’s and Buckley’s the place to be. With his plate literally full, Buckley sometimes has to hustle just to keep up. Please look both ways, when crossing the street, Michael!

New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."

So what defines an "It" Person?

How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency,  a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing. 

It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
