Thanksgiving in Portsmouth NH area
Thinking of going to Portsmouth for Thanksgiving. Will stay at the Wentworth by the sea. Looking for suggestions for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner in the area. Would also like to hear comments on the Wentworths restaurant in the main hotel for Thanksgiving.
I've only ever eaten breakfast buffet at the Wentworth. It's what you'd expect of a **** hotel. Competent omlette chef. Good selection of fresh fruit and berries.
I have no idea who is open for Thanksgiving. If I were calling around, I think I'd try the Victory first. It's in a townhourse at 96 State Street (Rt 1 North) a couple of short blocks from Prescott Park and the bridge to Maine. The upstairs is a nicely restored natural brick & fireplace setting. The food is good quality and a mildly creative twist on New England cuisine. A foodie will enjoy it. A meat & potato blue hair tourist won't be scared away. Parking (a big deal in Portsmouth) is 100 yards away on Court Street in the Strawbery Banke employee lot. If they do Thanksgiving, I'd expect interesting upscale versions of traditional side dishes.
