Find an interesting array of spaces to enjoy dinner at Lavinia’s on Rt. 25 in Center Harbor. The beautiful murals and refined décor remain from the former Coe House, while upstairs spaces are more relaxed. The cozy Belknap Tavern on the second floor also has a separate entrance on the side.

A few classics on the regular menu available in every spot include the charcuterie board ($9, $14), house-made bolognese with house-made fettucine ($19), 8-ounce filet mignon ($33) and house pasta with Guinness braised short ribs ($19).

A tavern menu is available, too. The menu will be refreshed for April, but continuing on Wednesdays is the Triple B: Burger, beer and a bourbon for $19. The Belkap Burger offers locally raised beef with smoked bacon, Grafton cheddar and caramelized onions. On Thursdays local charities are benefactors to a percentage of proceeds.

Reservations are necessary on summer weekends.

Opens for dinner at 4:30 p.m Tuesday through Saturday. After Mother’s Day they are open on Sundays. They are also open on Mondays after Memorial Day.

Open Tuesday-Thursday 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Open Friday-Saturday 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
18 Main St., Center Harbor
(603) 253-8617
