Best of Portsmouth
A very tasty and fun place to drink and dine is the Blue Mermaid, on the Hill, just behind the Hilton Garden Inn. Start with Orange Ginger Spring Rolls or Lobster Quesadilla, then Island Braised Beef Short Ribs or Seafood Tagine. There's also a complete beverage menu. It's a big blue historic building that goes way back. Here's the dinner menu.
