One hour away from Boston, the seacoast, or the mountains, Merrimack is steeped in history and, for the lucky ones who live there or visit, rich in New England flavors. Seafood is one thing Merrimack does exceedingly well. Begin your dinner with pan-sautéed sea scallops or parmesan-fried calamari and move on to entrees that will delight, like shrimp and lobster carbonara, miso-marinated salmon, and pan-roasted Atlantic swordfish. For those who prefer turf to surf, there's delicious filet Mignon and prime rib along with scrumptious chicken and pork dishes. Don't miss the local bread company while you're there for some truly delicious loaves, sandwiches, and pies. With vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options available, Merrimack is truly a small town with a big selection of culinary offerings.
