    Part way up the mountain

    The highest point in New Hampshire is accessible by road. It is quite cold and windy at the top. Make sure you have a coat and hat, even in the middle of summer.

    Always packed with locals it can sometimes be tough to get a table despite their expanded dining areas. The whole restaurant is decked out in Japanese decor among the standard restaurant tables, chairs, and booths. The smaller lunch menu includes some lunch only entrees but several budget friendly personal options. While the dinner menu is several pages long, it provides numerous options for family style eating or individual dishes.

    Since I don't eat seafood I couldn't tell you if they have sushi or not but I know there are numerous seafood options on the menu.

    Favorite Dish: Kushi - breaded chicken and vegetables fried and served on a pair of skewers.
    DoorKnobs - bread mushrooms stuffed with chicken, a great appetizer.
    Fried mushrooms & broccoli - deep fried breaded mushrooms and tempura style broccoli both in large appetizer portions.
    Osoba soup - broth soup with pork, peapods, noodles, and crunchy fried tempura batter; available in several sizes as a side or even a main course.
    Yaki Soba - soba noodles with chicken and oriental vegetables; my husbands favorite, he always stops in to get an order when we are in town - but you have to get there early because it is only on the lunch menu.

    Usually five-star rated or quality restaurants are located in and around the city but Libby's is the exception. Excellent food in a small, intimate, quiet setting set this restaurant apart from everything else in town. You won't find any through hikers here, but you certainly will find a mix of tourists from all over the globe, native's that are willing to travel over an hour for an excellent meal, and local's with good palettes.
    The menu regularly changes and while it has many french influences you will find a whole variety from around the globe.

    Jointly owned and run is a coffe shop/gourmet food store called SAALT, if you don't have time or the appropriate outfit for a gourmet meal the store is worth stopping in to.

    Favorite Dish: Pecan crusted chicken is to die for, perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Even Chef Ramsay would be impressed.

Gorham Warnings and Dangers

  • by archtrgeek Written Aug 2, 2007

    The white mountains can be very dangerous during the winter and until all the snow is gone the danger remains.
    If you choose to ski, snowboard, or hike in the white mountains you should always make sure that someone knows where you are going and when you will return. Also make sure to ALWAYS CHECK THE FORECAST before heading out. Remember though that weather at the top of the mountain is not the same as the weather in the valley. In New England and even more so in the mountains the weather can change drastically in an instant. So long as there is snow on the ground avalanches of snow, craters, hidden pockets, and many more dangers can be out there. As late as July you can find snow in the pockets and ravines of the mountains, these dangers are even more prominant as the snow melts both on the ground side and the air side - tread carefully and when in doubt walk around the snow.

    Nearby search and rescue teams in Gorham put their lives in jeopardy to save winter enthusiasts from these dangers every year. Also FYI - cell phones and radios do not get reception in all places in the mountains and even a clear path to a satallite usually can't be found when you have fallen inside a massage snow pile.
