Looking for Best Destination Restaurants in VT, NH, ME

In Burlington VT there is a Chinese restaurant called A Single Pebble. The tables have lazy susans to encourage sharing. Their Dim Sum and tasting menus are fun, and excite the taste buds! Definitely try the Dry fried green beans. We have detoured there when driving up to Canada, and have eaten there when we were in Burlington for concerts.

The other place that came to mind is LA.Burdick's in Walpole, NH. I see someone else agrees! I have a hard time not ordering the beef stew - with olives and mashed potatoes. Everything is so fresh. I don't know if all the meat is local, but I know some is. A few times ago I even had bone marrow there. After a wonderful meal, they bring you a chocolate to top it off. Then...go into their chocolate store. You have to buy their signature mice to bring home and eat them by holding their ribbon tail! Burdick's also celebrates Bastille day and Octoberfest. Walpole is a gorgeous little town. Afterwards, wander into Walpole grocery store next door.

Hard rolls near Mahwah

I got my husband doing some research now! So I think the Italian bakeries I remember might have made "rosetta" style rolls because they didn't have the cuts on top, but were twisted. He found this link is to a place in Bristol, CT, and we're planning on checking it out some day. So, if you're near Bristol, check out http://www.theharvestbakery.com/baked... (possibly...)

Hard rolls near Mahwah

Thanks so much!! I think I'll be having a ham, salami and roasted pepper sandwich, and one with butter for breakfast. :)

Hard rolls near Mahwah

I'm going to be in NJ (Mahwah) next weekend and would love to find a bakery or store to buy hard rolls.

They are not available where I live now. I'm originally from CT and the Italian bakeries we used to get them from are gone now.

(I mean the real kind that dry out in a day or two!)

Any suggestions? I'll drive about a 30 minutes or so if that helps!
