need rec's for Meredith NH

defboater Jul 8, 2009 04:34 PM

going to Meredith NH for 2 nights - would appreciate any rec's for dinner - no Italian or seafood, please.

Would like a decent price wine list. Walking distance to downtown would be great.

    Might someone make a slightly louder noise about Mame's? It is a very quiet, unpretentious place. Let me say right off the bat that we've never dined downstairs, but are fond of the bar fare upstairs after xc skiing or kayaking. This past weekend we had the lobster flat bread pizza. Other restaurants might sit some cheese next to a lobster in the walk in and hope for a magical transfer of flavor, but this dish had generous chunks of lobster, properly cooked (no easy feat on pizza). The wine list is not extensive but you'll find something of interest there, and always a microbrew on draft.

      There's always Hart's Turkey Farm if you don't eat Italian or seafood

        Meredith is what it is - a tourist town - and for the most part, the food is reflective of that. The best/worst examples of that are the Common Man Restaurants. After many negative experiences, I avoid them all. I would head to Moultonborough for some wonderfully fresh food at Lemongrass.

          just went to the new place "the bob house" on Rt. 25 - they need to get some service kinks out but I loved the: calimari, prices are great, sisters have been a few times and like it a lot. They used to own a rest in Franklin " The Belvidere" and the diner in Plymouth.

          I would go again.

        The Common Man is pretty well represented in Meredith (Lago, Town Docks, Lakehouse, and Camp). Of those four, I think that Lakehouse at Church's Landing has some non-seafood dishes, and Camp has a rather... well... unique menu.

        Both menus can be found at http://www.thecman.com

          Your right, they are not all created equally though. I don't enjoy the camp, except for the ambiance - nice laid back. Town Docks - forget it, service stops me from going there. Lago is great.

          The Lake House at Church Landing might work, nice views of the lake too. I love their wedge and have had several dishes there that were fantastic.

          Hope you hit George's Diner for breakfast while you are there - nice local spot, walking distance from the docks.

            Your "no Italian" requirement rules out my favorite, Lago's.
