For some reason, I've ended up in this part of the state several times this year already. I met friends for lunch at Luca's a couple of weeks ago. Love their menu and it's such a nice atmosphere. But yesterday I needed a sandwich lunch while going on the garden tour. Something I could eat in the car. I decided on Keene Fresh Salad Company, specifically the warm portabella sandwich with chicken and basil pecan pesto on their own focaccia bread. It was a great sandwich but a little drippy. I made a big mistake with a bottle of ice tea already purchased from a gas station because they have several beverages that probably would have been a lot better. I might need to go back to try their sangria. While waiting for my sandwich, I stood at the counter and tasted all their pesto samples. All were terrific. Some of the trip advisor complaints are very unfriendly owner but I found the person at the counter to be very friendly and helpful. He recommended the focaccia bread for the sandwich and I'm glad he did. There are tables but this is a very casual place, possibly doing more take-out business than eat in. If I had planned to eat there, I would have sat at one of the outdoor tables. The street is shady and Keene seems to have a lively downtown.
