Sugar Hill NH--recs?

The Sugar Hill Inn is the best fine dining in the area. Great 5 course pre frixe menu with amuse bouche but wine list was a little sparse last time we ate there. Polly"s Pancake Parlor is a must. Wendles in Franconia would be a lunch option. I would avoid The Dutch Treat and The Sunset Hill Inn.

Best meal in East Village for $50pp - preferrably the alphabet avenues.

I'll second The Redhead. No better food for the money, very talented Chef. Get there
early the place fills up fast.

Have a large patch of May Apples (American Mandrake) on my property that should produce plenty of fruit this year and would like to utilize it. Any good recipes out there?

Goat Meat - Portland, ME

Has Maine raised goat meat through a co-op. There's links to Farm direct purchases as well .

[Lincoln, NH] Bad review for Nachos Mexican Grill

As a rule i avoid any "mexican" restaurant with the word Nacho in the name as strongly as i avoid seafood restaurants starting with the word "Captain".

Cold Beer after White Mtn. Hike? Help!!

Woodstock Station: good beer but food?.... Pack a lunch.

Moat Mountain Smokehouse: great beer and good pulled pork.

New Hampshire Restaurants

Very talented brewer at Moat Mountain Smokehouse. Tasty pulled pork too.
Woodstock Station Brewery.

Not the coldest but the best beer in the area.


Carrots, Beets and Cilantro makes a nice blended juice.

The Balsams, Dixville Notch NH--WHAT HAPPENED

The Era of New England's Grande Dame Resorts is fading fast. In the last three years The Balsams, Mt. Washington, and The Mountain View Grand have all been sold to large out of area corporations. All three have seem to be struggling.
The Wentworth by the Sea has recent new ownership as well, Marriott Hotels.

Lunch spot near Mount Washington, NH

If you want non resort food try Cold Mountain Cafe in Bethlehem or Faden's BBQ in Littleton.

Any good Menudo in NE?

Moved back to New Hampshire after eleven years in Colorado and missing my favorite mexican soup.

Oat and Honey Vodka

Very tasty. I used cheap vodka but good oats(steel cut irish) and gave it an extra day steeping.
