It's no secret that we have a loud and proud foodie population here in New England, and with good reason.

Countless magazines, websites, and digital platforms have written about our diverse and delicious food scene. Many of our New England restaurants were featured on Yelp's 'Top 100 US Restaurants 2023' list, visited by Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, or praised by the New York Times on their prestigious annual Restaurant List.

The existence of the Seacoast Eats Facebook group is further evidence of how much we love our food. With over 50,000 members at the time of this writing, the page continues to draw in crowds eager to talk about their favorite restaurants, share updates on openings and closings, and discuss the best (and worst) eats around. It's the perfect place to get the scoop on all things food in the area.

But when it comes to New Hampshire restaurants, which ones are among the fanciest?

Most of us can't afford to regularly splurge on fine dining, but that doesn't mean you can't treat yourself every once in a while. Perhaps you're celebrating an anniversary, birthday, or other milestone, or are simply up for trying something new. Whatever the case may be, if you're looking to eat at one of the Granite State's fanciest establishments, look no further than these 15 restaurants, all of which were recommended by locals.
