NEXT MONDAY IS A BIG DAY for New Hampshire restaurants.

For the first time since March 16, they will be allowed to host patrons for sit-down dining. But because of the restrictions imposed by the state’s Stay At Home 2.0 rules, seating will be limited to outdoor dining areas only.

Unfortunately, not every restaurant has the space to do outdoor seating, which means those that can’t will have to stick to takeout service or, worse, remain closed until the restrictions are eased.

Until that happens —or at least until the weather warms up consistently —the Our Gourmet crew will remain on hiatus from our regular weekly reviews of individual restaurants.

So we’ll leave it to you, faithful readers, to continue sharing your comments about your favorite restaurants and the good work they’re doing under difficult circumstances. The response over the past few weeks has been steady, so keep up the good work.

Here are a few recent submissions:

Diane Martineaure commends a Manchester landmark: “A great restaurant to try for more than burgers is Red Arrow Diner. Last Saturday night my husband tried the steak tips with mushrooms and gravy dinner ($14.75). It came with 2 sides. He opted for rice pilaf and a small green salad. The tips were cooked perfectly, they were tender and flavorful. The mushrooms were sauteed and packed separately as was the gravy, the salad was crisp.

“I had the turkey dinner, which included real turkey meat and the usual fixings along with 2 sides ($11.99). Both dinners were well packed, delicious, plentiful and still hot when we got home.

“The waitress was friendly and the dinners were ready for pickup when we got there. Give them a try you won’t be disappointed.”
