High Street Farmhouse adds some diversity to Goffstown dining
The restaurant, open since December at 9 High St., offers locals a dining experience that isn't stuffy, but offers high-quality meals at reasonable prices, said Guy Streitburger, who owns the restaurant with his wife, Jen Lutzen.
Streitburger said the ultimate goal is to provide excellent food and service.
The two aren't new to running a restaurant. They previously owned the Pinkerton Tavern in Derry from 2002 to 2011, and were part of the teams at Richard's Bistro in Manchester and Silo's Steakhouse in Merrimack.
"Why should someone go to Manchester or Concord to get a great meal?" Streitburger said. "That was missing around here."
Open Wednesday through Saturday for dinner, and noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays, the High Street Farmhouse features theme nights, including Wednesday's Burger and Brew night, Fresh Catch Friday and Smokin' Saturdays, where the staff smokes prime rib on the premises.
"We're also doing smoked lobster tails," Lutzen added, some of which will be used for the lobster panini sandwich.
Lutzen said the goal of the restaurant is to use more local foods, and they plan to take advantage of this summer's local produce. The two will also plant a small garden on site.
So far, business has been good for the 70-seat restaurant, and Streitburger said they've received a warm welcome from the community.
Diners can look forward to the opening of the deck around Memorial Day, and other themed dinners as well. "Now that we've got a few months under our belt, we'll start to add a few things," Streitburger said. "We wanted to get to know the community."
