Six Burner Bistro: Plymouth, NH

If anyone is visiting Plymouth, NH in the near future, or lives in the area, I would highly recommend they check out the Six Burner Bistro on Main Street. It is a small, chef-owned place with big portions and reasonable prices. They are open for lunch and dinner most days. I recently went to the bistro with my family several times and enjoyed it very much. It is a small establishment, with only about 10 tables. Though the dinner menu stays the same, the chef prepares a new lunch menu daily.
The food is excellent. Fresh seafood, meat grilled perfectly to order, crisp, fresh, al dente vegetables bought earlier in the day from a local farm, homemade mozzarella, homemade soups.
Chef/owner Rob Kelly runs old favorites, but with a twist--Manchego Steak and Cheese, Sesame-Crusted Salmon with Wasabi, Lobster Mac and Cheese, even Cheeseburger Chowder, a favorite of mine that ANYONE will enjoy.
Be prepared to love everything on your plate. The chef takes just as much pride in his side dishes as he does his main courses. The vegetables are always perfectly seasoned, with just enough butter. I had potatoes Au Gratin there that were absolutely to die for, and normally I hate potatoes Au Gratin.
I also must reiterate that the chef buys all fresh produce from a local farm, Owens Farm in Holderness, NH. So the vegetables are always delicious and fresh, and you can support local growers while you enjoy them!
Please check out the Six-Burner Bistro in Plymouth, NH. I know you will not be disappointed!

  1. Very Kewl!! Thanks. Sounds wonderful. I used to live in Plymouth - moons ago. Sounds like it's worth a trip up. Do you know where the chef came from? I love supporting local farmers too.

    1. Thanks for the report on Six Burners. Wife and I took a foliage trip yesterday and stopped for lunch. She had chicken and pasta soup, which was like a very good home-made chicken-noodle soup, and half a pastrami and Swiss cheese sandwich. I had the corn and lobster chowder, which was a thick, rich corn chowder with fairly large chunks of lobster meat, with half a tuna and wasabi wrap, which turned out be garnished with moist and crunchy seaweed. I also had the risotto ball of the day, which was mozzarelli and raspberry risotto fried in a good sized "ball," golden crispy on the outside and creamy inside. Only complaint: the delicious soups would be better if served a bit hotter. We are glad we planned our trip around Plymouth and the Six Burners Bistro.
