The Common Man is a New Hampshire based chain of family-owned restaurants, founded in 1971 in Ashland. Concord’s outlet, which debuted 14 years ago now, flaunts a warming atmosphere founded on a well-executed balance of rustic setting and elegant décor, especially recommended for families. The kitchen rustles up exquisite specialties of New England cuisine – begin with fresh mussels or baked escargots, follow by a hand-selected grilled filet with bérnaise sauce on top or a turkey pot pie from the house’s array of specialities. Alternatively, go for a fish entrée (Portsmouth pie, swordfish brochette, baked scallops) prepared with fish brought in fresh from the coast.
