THE BEACH PLUM
17 Ocean Blvd.
North Hampton, NH
Stop for lunch here, a little seafood shack directly across the street from the North Hampton State Beach, and enjoy a lobster roll under a grove of cool pines. ($-$$) Open late May-late Sept. 11 a.m..-10:30 p.m.
But really it’s all about the ice cream.
Named for the native shrub or the plum spot across from the beach?

This looks like fun: Hood Launches Taste of New Hampshire Contest
Are New Hampshire ice cream lovers ready for their first tastes of Granite State Caramel, Lake Winnipesaukee Walnut, Mount Washington Cherry Fudge Chunk, Presidential Primary Pistachio or Kancamagus Krunch Ice Creams?
Any of those New Hampshire-inspired ice cream names could be the winning flavor chosen this July in the first-ever “Taste of New Hampshire” Flavor-Naming Contest. Due to popular demand, the contest, open to all New Hampshire residents, will climax with the August 2006 introduction in New Hampshire supermarkets of the first-ever New Hampshire flavor – part of Hood’s 18-flavor New England Creamery Ice Cream campaign.
Hmm, how about New Hampshire Black Fly, plain vanilla with lots of raisins?
