I feel like an idiot. I just "discovered" this page and I have to reveal a favorite restaraunt in the area. Miele's(sp?) on the main street of Newmarket. The town alone is worth a visit - antiques all over the street. Some are well worth the look and you may want to bring some extra cash and provide room in the car for goodies.
Back to Miele's... Good food, well prepared, varied menu, pleasant service, adequate wine list, very nice ambiance but a little loud at times as it fills up. Reservations are a help or you could wait a long time even though they will try to fit you in. It has become a regular stop on my visits to my sister in nearby Frederick MD.
