From NY to Dover, NH to Portland, ME. What should I eat!?

I'm driving up with a friend to Portland this coming Monday-Wednesday. We are stopping in Dover, NH for lunch (because we are visiting the WOKQ radio station). The biggest question I have is...where should we eat lunch there? We were first intrigued by the Silver Moon Creperie but they are closed on Mondays.

We have already been to Portland so we have a good idea on where to go up there. But if there are any must eats you want to share I would love to hear about them.

  1. Yummy Garden in dover has some good reviews on here for dim sum.

    1. Bummer - Silver Moon would have been clear #1 choice. As near-locals, I can tell you there's nothing that's going to stand out when stacked against Portland or NYC. Our personal highlights in the area are Dos Amigos (which does a very nice hippie-Mexican vibe) and Khaophum's Thai. I've heard neat Chow-worthy things about but never visited the Quick to Go middle-eastern restaurant in a gas station in nearby Somersworth.

      Or, go south towards Portsmouth on your way up to Portland, and stop off at Fresh Local Bayside which opens this weekend.

        Just a little update...we didn't end up spending much time in Dover after visiting the radio station. We didn't really want to sit and eat, we were eager to get back on the road. We ate pizza at some place that claimed to have "New York Style brick oven pizza". It was decent but I am spoiled by real New York pizza. They did have these great (fattening) cinnamon knots. Yum!
