These are the only restaurants in the Granite State to get their fifteen minutes of fame on famous food TV shows. 

New Hampshire has clearly been passed over when Food Network and Travel Channel go out in search of some of the best food in America.

According to only seven New Hampshire restaurants (technically 5 - two have since closed!) were featured on TV*. Meanwhile, California has over 800. Go figure.

*Not counting regional television shows like Phantom Gourmet, and Dining Playbook.
