NYC Foodie in Portsmouth, NH for One Night...
Where should I have dinner this Saturday? I've read through posts and gotten a few suggestions from people in the area:
Can anyone give me feedback on these places? We are looking for great food in a casually elegant atmosphere.
If you have ever eaten Italian in NYC, you are not gonna like Pesce Blue - very mediocre, tourist oriented food. The only one from your list that I can say is above average is The Black Trumpet. I've never been disappointed there.
Anneke Jans is the best on the list. Great vibe, great service, great food. Don't miss the fried olives and the mussels!
what did you decide on? I think I would've voted for Anneke Jans -- I thought the value was higher there for the price, and the service is so friendly and helpful... they're both great for local ingredients prepared well, but I preferred Anneke Jans when I went a month or so ago, because of the frites and the excellent coffee and desserts.
