Celebrating her 5th anniversary at what is now Thyme, in White River Junction, owner Eileen McGuckin yesterday offered a free order of their best-in-the-UV fries per table. Let's just say that this was not something people at DailyUV were about to pass up.
But along with those fries, we also plunked down for a couple of orders of Thyme's artichoke fritters. They were unreal. Browned and satisfyingly crisp on the outside, soft and with that melting, indescribable artichoke sweetness on the inside.
Yet somehow, when our friendly neighboring blog "Best of the UV" polled people on best appetizers, the wisdom of the Upper Valley crowd failed. No one mentioned Thyme's artichoke fritters. So hey! Best of the UV! Here's one vote.
