The Margarita Grill of Glen, NH

26 Mar

After receiving an application from Margarita Grill in January, Charlie(president/volunteer of NHFRC), Rachelle(NHFRC volunteer) and I set out on a beautiful drive to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Upon arriving at the restaurant early, we found owner Corrine Rober meeting with a local soda distributor, who carries Squamscot Soda, to develop a relationship with him to list these sodas on the menu.  After spending only a few minutes with Corrine it was easy to see her passion for serving local cusine and even more for educating the public about the importance of eating local.

Corrine told of us her constant efforts to research and develop relationships with local farmers and food suppliers. She also told of us the efforts her husband was making to pick up the food from a farm outside of town.

I was delighted to find that the local food/wine was even promoted in the restroom on a small chalk board.  “Ask about our Week Of Mead!” was written on a chalk board. Visit the Margarita Grill Facebook page to keep up with the frequent special event weeks featuring local cuisine.

Margarita grill is now Certified Local! After evaluating the restaurant using our point system the HIGH score reflected their strong efforts in sourcing locally, promoting local artisans and musicians, and focusing on green and sustainable practices. The grill is also certified at the highest level by the New Hampshire Lodging and Restaurant Association’s Sustainability Program.

If you are in the area, stop on in for a taste of Southwestern style cuisine with local fare and look for our certified local stickers!
