portsmouth dining advice?
spending the weekend in Portsmouth NH and looking for good places to eat. Anything from casual but good dinner to fine dining experiences would be most helpful. Thanks.
start with fresh oysters and drinks at jumpin jay's at the bar, than for dinner try the Black Trumpet or the Green Monkey. I have not tried Brazo's yet (across the street from the green monkey)...same owners as the green monkey. For late night greasy snacking...a portsmouth tradition is a trailer by the parking garage, called Gilley's. stick to the hot dogs but enjoy the people watching! have a great weekend
I've been to both Green Monkey and Brazos, on separate occasions. I like both. What I might do next time is drinks/apps at Brazos and dinner at Green Monkey -- or maybe vice-versa.
Although I'm heading up for a show this weekend and am looking for something more casual and quick. I was thinking about the decks, if it's nice. I go to the Ferry Landing at least once a summer (order from the specials, if you go). If the weather doesn't cooperate, I might try Agave (been to the one in NBPT) or go back to Jumpin' Jays or Radici.
I love the Salmon Sandwich and Curried Mussels at Portsmouth Brewery for casual.
Lobster on the deck of the Oar House, is another favorite.
