Here's their menu. A great place to celebrate a special event.

It's a more French taste and style, so it depends on your taste. We love the refined food and quiet date-night atmosphere. But if you're looking for a great steak, large portions, fun crowd, this is not the place.

I've eaten there and enjoyed it immensely.

If not THE BEST, they're certainly up there.

A bit posh, a bit fancy, but there's nothing wrong with that, at least in a town of well-heeled, well educated folk such as Wolfeboro.

Yeah, it drips of class...

You've got two posts in 4 years, both critical and pompous.

It's not unusual, at all, for "the best restaurant" to not meet someone's expectations, especially if they were set too high.

Default Personal choice

I agree with Marinalou. Mis en Place is top notch. Based on other posts, it is not a "cup of tea" for Thinkxingu and I suggest he not spend his $$$$ here.

We can discuss what is "top notch" or whatever (I contend, like the dude in "Sour Grapes" revealed about the wine industry, that much of it is hype and fabricated elitism, but that's another discussion), but to criticize someone because their experience didn't meet the expectation is lame.

Saying it’s the best restaurant in the lakes region, isn’t saying much. We don’t come here for fine dining. We come here for the lake.

Good point! Judging fine restaurants is strictly personal opinion, and we were not impressed with Mise en Place…no big deal. Marinalou thinks it’s spectacular, and that’s terrific. I just hope he doesn’t show up there in flip flops and backwards baseball hat since it’s so upscale. ��

I think much of the discord or misunderstanding comes from people not discussing exactly what they mean by "top notch", and especially not using the "poofy" vs "not poofy" distinction you coined in another thread.

As a person who enjoys both poofy and non poofy places, I don't really think it's fair to judge poofy places by non poofy standards, and vice versa. We shouldn't be bashing poofy places for being refined, and we shouldn't be bashing non poofy places for being inauthentic.

Just staying on poofy standards--Mise en Place is terrific. One of the very best in the region, and it could also succeed in Boston. (But it will definitely have garnish in a spot on the plate that could be holding more steak!)
