The dining portion of '53 Commons includes 8 distinct stations, each serving a different style of food, ranging from kosher to a meat-free kitchen serving vegetarian and vegan dishes.  Our state of the art Wood Stone pizza oven serves up some of the best pizza in the Upper Valley, and there is always a larges selection of fresh breads, pastries and cookies at the Bakery.
