Yankee Names "The Best 5 New England Diners"
Dublin, New Hampshire (April 2008)–For its May/June Special 2008 Travel Issue, Yankee Magazine asked Richard Gutman, curator of the Culinary Arts Museum at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, and author of three books on the history of diners, to name the top five diners in New England — a difficult task, considering that there are
more than 300 diners just in Massachusetts.
In each issue, Yankee names “The Best 5″ in different categories. The next issue, July/August, will recognize the best five ice-cream stands for summer in New England.
“The Best 5″ picks for New England diners are:
- Modern Diner — Pawtucket, RI; 401-726-8390; quahog.org/cuisine
- Kelly’s Diner — Somerville, MA; 617-623-8102
- Capitol Diner — Lynn, MA; 781-595-9314
- Libby’s Blue Line Diner — Colchester, VT; 802-655-0343
- A1 Diner — Gardiner, ME; 207-582-4804; a1diner.com
