I love love love Bailiwicks. Hidden in the back of the recently refurbished historic Thayer's Inn in downtown Littleton, the restaurant and bar is warm and inviting wherever you sit, and there's lots of choice -- a small cozy table, or a tall table backed by mirrors (my favorite), or even at the bar. And the food is amazing. We go several times a summer when we're up in the White Mountains, and we always have to get the Calamari Ricardo. The flavors are indescribable, and we've tried to get something that approaches Bailiwicks version at several excellent restaurants, but this dish is uniquely theirs. Just the right kick with hot peppers calmed by roasted peppers and sun dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, and I don't know what else, but everything comes together perfectly. The calamari is crispy but not overdone or doughy at all.
The other night we went for the Tuscan Grill and a delish Chicken tart. Everything was perfect, and the wine choices were just right for us.
If you're in the North Country, don't miss this gem. It is fabulous and never disappoints.
