Nothing like a city hosting a Restaurant Week to make you smile! I just came from a weekend Food and Wine Festival, and I am finding it difficult to become grounded again as I eat my boxed oatmeal and slice my own fruit. Ah, to be spoiled!
Whether you frequent the charming seaside town of Portsmouth, N.H., or not, this week is an opportunity to spread yourselves out, and cover a lot of its terrific restaurant scene. From today until Sunday, Portsmouth's 200+ restaurants, galleries, and shops have organized for visitors to have a delicious dining, strolling, and shopping experience. Three-course prix fixe menus are: $16.95 per person for lunch, and $29.95 per person for dinner (and at this bargain, it does not include beverages, taxes or gratuity, so plan accordingly). Reservations are strongly recommended, and especially so on the weekend evenings. And a special note to skip lunch on Saturday when participating restaurants will only accept Restaurant Week reservations for seatings prior to 6:30 p.m. Check here for participating restaurants.
