It's no secret that we have a loud and proud foodie population here in New England, and with good reason. Our restaurant industry is killing it right now, and there's never a shortage of new establishments opening their doors to the public. You can never run out of places to visit for your next dining experience, especially in New Hampshire.

In the past, we've talked about countless standout restaurants here in the Granite State. These places are home to some of the best eats around, from mouthwatering burgers to delicious donuts, mac & cheese, farm-to-table cuisines, Italian food, and more. But now, we're turning our attention to a fairly broad topic that's sparked an interesting conversation: New Hampshire's most interesting restaurants.

Now, what constitutes a restaurant as 'interesting'? We're glad you asked.

In short, it depends on the customer. Some people want to eat somewhere with a unique, fancy, or eclectic atmosphere. Others would rather try strange and unusual cuisines, or dine at a place offering one-of-a-kind twists on classic dishes. Given the history of our region, there may also be an appeal in restaurants on historic properties. Whatever the case may be, everyone has their own thoughts on what makes a restaurant unique.

With that in mind, we decided to go on Facebook and learn more about some of New Hampshire's most interesting restaurants. After asking our readers and listeners for their input, we've compiled this countdown list of New Hampshire's 15 most interesting restaurants. Let's dive in and learn more about these places, and why locals think they're the cream of the crop.
