    Fritz Belgian Fries: Panini, Belgian Fries, and Lambic

    by sarahandgareth Updated Jun 10, 2004

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A relatively new Keene establishment, Fritz has quickly become one of our favorite lunch stops. The fries are wonderful, there is always a great selection of paninis if you feel the need for something a bit healthier, and the beer menu is unique. They have Stella Artois on tap and bottled Unibroues, Ommegang Abbey Ale, Hennepin, and Lindemans Lambics.

    Favorite Dish: Obviously, you can't eat here and not try the fries and a variety of sauces. We especially like the Special Sauce, a combination of fritessaus (a traditional mustardy mayonnaise imported from Holland), ketchup and fresh onion.

    Rick's Gourmet Ice Cream: Soft Serve or Hard-Packed? Your Choice!

    by sarahandgareth Written Sep 15, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rick's is tucked away in a rather unattractive mall - especially in the evening, when everything else is closed. Of course, you soon forget about the surroundings when you're confronted with a list of something like 45 possibilities, plus cakes!

    They emphasise the soft-serve custard-style ice-cream here, but some of the hard-packed stuff is just as good, so experiment away.

    Elm City Brewing Company: Keene's Brewpub

    by sarahandgareth Written Sep 15, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It seems like every town has a brewpub these days, and they can vary wildly in quality. This is a pretty decent entry in the genre, with a very solid beer lineup: we tried four on our last visit, and all bar one met with enthusiasm from our well-versed crew!

    The decor is a little on the boring side, and there's a lack of atmosphere in the dining side, but there are a few touches that balance that out, like the attractive booths (if you get one), and the pot of Trivial Pursuit questions on the tables, perfect for whiling away time until the food gets there. You may even find yourself asking questions while eating!

    Favorite Dish: The pasta dishes are a standout here: they use very fresh ingredients, including plenty of tomatoes. It's nice to go to a brewpub where the healthier alternatives aren't an afterthought.

    The traditional sandwich fare is all pretty decent too, of course, but we'll vote for the pasta - and the great nachos. They say one order is good for two people, but we disagree. One order is good for four people!
