Annie’s Overflow Re-Opens in Plymouth NH

Annie's Overflow in Plymouth NH Re-Opens after Hurricane Irene

Annie's Overflow Re-Opened October 6th

Signs of Life Returning to Normal in Plymouth After Hurricane Irene

Things are finally starting to get back to normal after hurricane Irene in Plymouth NH with the re-opening of Annie’s Overflow on Rt 175 in Holderness NH. Located just across the border from Plymouth across the bridge on Rt 175, Annie’s is placed mid-way between the Plymouth State University main campus and the Field House. If you’re familiar with the lay of the land at all in Plymouth you know that location put Annie’s square in the middle of the flood damage zone from hurricane Irene in early September 2011.

From Flooding to Recovery in Plymouth NH

Regular readers of our blog will recall the sad videos we posted of the hurricane Irene flooding damage in Plymouth NH just after hurricane Irene flooded the town. Regular patrons will tell you of their feelings for local business-woman and friend Ann Currier, who had recently installed beautiful new carpeting in her restaurant. All the money spent remodeling and redecorating the place was barely paid when Irene blew into town and made a mess of her newly remodeled place.

Patrons React to the Damage by Putting Hands to Work

Finally this past Thursday (October 6, 2011) Annie’s was ready enough to turn the lights back on and re-open the doors. For folks like yours-truly, it wasn’t a moment too soon – not having had a proper breakfast in 4 weeks!

Belmont NH-

The Lakes Region has a new site of culinary delights, thanks to the Grand Opening of el Jimador restaurant at 171 Daniel Webster Highway in Belmont, NH. New owner Yesenia Arellano was very excited to open the doors this evening and serve her first customers, including yours truly.

A Long Family History in Mexican Fare

Owner Yesenia Arellano explained her desire to open a restaurant came from a long family history of restaurant ownership, including her parents and siblings. Although her family has a numer of restaurants in the Detroit Michigan area, Yesenia had moved to New Hampshire to be closer to her husband’s family. So here she is on opening night in Belmont NH.

Fine Mexican Dining Fare in an Attractive and Comfortable Setting

The dining area in el Jimador is attractive, spacious, and relaxing

As you might expect from the name, el Jimador’s charming staff serves quality authentic Mexican dishes, along with enough of the Americanized south of the border favorites for the diner with a less authentic appetite. While my lovely and charming companion enjoyed her taquitos with excellent spanish rice, I selected the less adventurous Americanized standard taco. We both had a good time and enjoyed the great food while listening to the light latin folk music playing in the background.

Welcome Yesenia and el Jimador restaurant, y buenas suerte!
