Lunch in Lebanon NH or White River Junction VT?

I'd like to stop for lunch on my way north. I remember a diner in Lebanon but don't remember the name. Is it still there? Or any other recommendation would be helpful? Thanks?

  1. Are you continuing up I-91? In Bradford, just about 30 minutes north of WRJ is Colatina Exit (that is actually the restaurant name), a great checkered tablecloth inexpensive Italian place. Best food we've ever had in the area. For something fancier, a relatively new spot in St. Johnsbury called Elements is supposed to be great, but I haven't been there yet myself.

    1. I would head up I-91 a little ways (10 minutes form Lebanon?)and have lunch at the Norwich Inn/Jasper Murdoch's. Tasty higher-end lunches that won't break the bank or leave you hungry. And they make their own beer which is pretty good.

      You can check out a sample lunch menu and get directions here:

      1. The Colatina is not open for lunch - I'm not sure about Elements and can't tell ffrom their website. If they are open it would only be for the summer. Worth a call, though...

        1. I think this is the right area, Simon Pearce in Quechee, Vt.

          I have been several times, and the food is scrumptious. And this time of year, you can eat outside overlooking the gorge.

          1. The Four Aces in West Lebanon?

            Some other ideas-

            I second the Norwich Inn suggestion.

            Gusanoz, mexican in a strip mall in West Leb. They have tasty ceviche on weekends.

            Three Tomatoes- on the green in Lebanon, pasta and wood oven pizza.

            Salt Hill- friendly neighborhood pub across from Three Tomatotes, sandwiches and burgers
