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?

    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.

      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:

        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...

          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.

            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
