One of our favorite parts about building Dealici is that we get to meet countless restaurant managers and owners (and many of those meetings come with a… ahem… free sample). We get to learn about their hopes, their struggles, and their desire to put fantastic food on your table and surround you with a welcoming and unique atmosphere.
We’re going to be regularly posting about the incredible people and locations we come across as Dealici grows. Here are the first awesome restaurants we’ve found in the Southeastern New Hampshire area.
If you know a great restaurant that should be listed in Dealici, please contact us right away so we can set something up. We’re always looking for opportunities to help diners and small businesses.
