“If you like oysters, or any sort of seafood, or even some fantastic Asian fusion cuisine, check out Pearl Restaurant and Oyster Bar. The owner/chef creates a menu of flavorful dishes that are perfectly seasoned and well-balanced. This place has quickly become my local favorite. ”

Grocery or Supermarket
“The Co-Op is the best place for groceries in Keene, with local produce and general foods at a variety of prices, a friendly staff who will help you find whatever you need, a deli counter, coffee counter, bakery, hot bar, salad bar, and eating area. There are small carts for the kids, which always makes shopping with little ones easier. It's really a community-centered space that makes grocery shopping actually feel good!”

Restaurant
“Well...the the only place listed not technically in Bellows Falls, but it's too good not to mention. Right across the river in Walpole, NH, a ten minute car trip and sooooo worth it! Burdicks is found in NYC, Chicago and .... here. What started out as a fine chocolatier has become a top tier Bistro with a little help from Ken Burns. Playbills of all his documentaries are on the walls. Find food and fine chocolates!”
