“Delicious Destination” – that’s the bottom line on Portsmouth, according to TV Diner and Portsmouth fans who know this town as a culinary heaven. Greater Portsmouth boasts hundreds of fine restaurants – from American cuisine to Italian to the freshest seafood around, from casual spots and breweries to upscale restaurants and intimate hideaways. The bounty includes riverfront dining overlooking the Piscataqua River and the trademark tugboats, cafés in Market Square, and brewery tours. For winter nightlife, come in from the cold and cozy up to live music from local bands and New England comfort foods. In 1970 chef James Haller opened the renowned Blue Strawberry and put Portsmouth on the map as a regional restaurant capital.Today, the city thrums with new places and young chefs bringing imaginative cuisine from distant places to the same wharves that welcomed foreign comestibles two centuries ago. Check out great restaurants here: www.goportsmouthnh.com
