The Bedford Village Inn has been a New England mainstay for years. Full disclosure: This Grub editor actually got married there a few years back. (We were too busy downing glasses of champagne to really remember what we ate, however.) A couple of months ago, the restaurant scored a coup when Benjamin Knack, late of Sel de la Terre and Hell's Kitchen, was recruited to be executive chef. And so we traveled north to Bedford, New Hampshire to see how things were going. The answer: Quite nicely indeed. And the trip only took us 45 minutes from Boston! Ahead, some of our favorite plates. Embarrassing wedding photos not included.
