When faced with hours of walking around and shopping at a huge mall, there may come a point when you just have to stop and eat. We felt compelled to report our experience at the Merrimack Premium Outlets as we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurants in the Food Court try to use quality ingredients, cook fresh and offer healthy alternatives to traditional mall fast foods. See what you think of our taste tests.
