Whatcha Hungry For? – Claremont's BEST Local Eats
Anybody who knows Claremont knows there’s a ton of excellent, locally owned eateries to satisfy a huge range of cravings.
We asked around and heard back from several Claremonters about some of their favorite places—and their favorite things on the menu—and put together this handy list of where to go and what to get. You’re welcome!
Best Subs Known to Mankind
285 Washington Street, Claremont
People have come in just because of the name of this sandwich shop, daring to be disappointed. But with homemade bread stuffed with just about anything you could want, you won’t be. You’ll be saying the name of this place to yourself, over and over again, as you chow down on that sub. We hear, too, that the burger is a sleeper hit.
26 Opera House Square, Claremont
A fixture on the Square for years, Farro Deli is universally loved for its locally sourced menu and casual charm. Follow Farro on Facebook and you’ll be treated almost daily to a mouth-watering picture of the sandwich special of the day—so good luck having that PB&J you brought to work. Ask about the North Country Smokehouse Sampler, using meats from another legendary local, North Country Smokehouse.
38 Opera House Square, Claremont
Look, we know you’ve already been here. Been here and gone back again. Um, hello, because TACOS. Don’t miss Tuesday Night Tacos at Revolution, with featured tacos each week. Folks also can’t get enough of specialties like Mexican Street Fight (marinated steak and chorizo with fajita veggies over rice—OMG!) and the Cubano sandwich. Oh, and the queso. And the salsa. All of it. Your dinner plans just got MADE.
The Pleasant Street Restaurant
84 Pleasant Street, Claremont
Locals don’t simply call it “The Pleasant” for nothing. Accessible, delicious American fare—both of the surf and the turf—make for a perfectly good way to treat you and the family to dinner. And save room for dessert because we hear the Coconut Pie is to die for.
Kouzoku Japanese Steakhouse
236 Washington Street, Claremont
Get your raw fish fix at Kouzoku, one of the newest additions to Claremont’s restaurant scene. A full sushi menu, from sashimi to hand rolls, has you covered, all in an elegant atmosphere. A tipster tells us that something called the Sushi Boat is the thing, which sounds like it’s some kind of vessel absolutely bursting with sushi. Go find out and report back.
Taverne on the Square
2 Pleasant Street, Claremont
Occupying a prime spot at the corner of Pleasant St. and Opera House Square, the Taverne is a go-to spot for anything from midday lunch meetings or happy hour drinks to actual dinner and a nightcap. You better come with an appetite; the portions aren’t small. And those in the know make sure to come when prime rib is one of the specials. For something lighter, the Cobb Salad is a revelation.
