Granite Restaurant & Bar in Concord, New Hampshire, is reopened
The long-awaited grand reopening of the Granite Restaurant & Bar located in the Centennial Hotel took place last night and I was there! I love great food and great atmosphere and this restaurant certainly ticked all the boxes!
According to a press release from JLA Public Relations, Granite Restaurant & Bar has welcomed a new executive chef to head its kitchen. His name is Chef Charlie Lavery and he has decades of experience under his belt at amazing New England restaurants such as the Snowvillage Inn located in Eaton, NH and Central Provisions in Portland, Maine. (Love this place!) All new menu items celebrate local and artisanal produce from all over New England. Live and local, just like our radio show! Many of their ingredients all come from nearby suppliers such as Tennery Farm, Rosaley’s Farm, Dunk’s Mushrooms and more.
Want to see what I put in my belly?
HERE WE ARE!
There is no such thing as the perfect martini. Oh wait, yes it does! Here is a Gray Goose Martini with olives and lots of olive juice. I didn’t even have a funny look when I ordered it “filthy”. Their bar is well stocked and they are ready to whip up your favorites. (my friend had a Cosmo which was also a delight you can see by looking at my Martini)
This drink is called “Naked and Famous” I admit it, I was drawn to the name. It was composed of Mezcal, aperol, yellow chartreuse and lime juice. Pretty, isn’t she?
You can’t go wrong with Statler Chicken! I love their approach to this classic.
The New York Strip was cooked to perfection. I should have made a little boomerang cutting through this bad boy but I dropped the ball!
This dessert had a chic and cool name that I can’t remember but it’s basically a carrot cake in a mason jar! It was absolutely decadent and one of my favorite things that I have consumed all year round.
We can’t forget the life changing lava cookie. The contrast between the cold ice cream and the hot cookie straight out of the oven made my taste buds dance with pleasure.
We also had the Brussels sprouts as an appetizer which was * the chef’s kiss * but we ate them too quickly so I didn’t get a pic. If that’s not a testament to how delicious they were, I don’t know what it is!
And There you go! I’m still full and it was yesterday. Discover their amazing new menu for yourself. They are open to applications and their hours are as follows:
