Road trip to New England
We are going to road trip from DC to Maine and back. We'd like to try a mix of restaurants - local diners, mid-price joints, fine dining. Will be going up the i95 but willing to take detours/side tracks if it gets us some good grub. Any recommendations?
You'll only get replies in the DC/Baltimore area on this board. Not sure if you'll be hungry within 45 minutes of starting out.
Stop in NY for lunch, Boston for dinner, then eat in Maine while you're there. Pepe's pizza in New Haven/Hartford would be a worthwhile detour.
If you stop in Kittery ME for the outlets, Bob's is famous for its Fried Clams and Lobster Rolls......a bit further up, get off on Rte 1 before the Maine tolls and head to Flo's in York ME for great dogs......not much of a detour.
Lot of good places in CT just off the 95 on the old post road/Rte 1....search here
You decide to go up 84 way, the Blue Colony Diner at Exit 10 in the now famous town of Sandy Hook has always been a fav....easy on/off
I see BT's has already been recommended....go there!!!
Up in Acadia there is a popover place...Jordan Pond House. Supposed to be amazing.
LA Burdick for chocolates...a few in Boston and one in Walpole NH
Republic in Manchester NH for local, organic items. Was a semi finalist last year for a Beard award.
Pickity Place in Mason NH....reservations needed.
