New Hampshire’s Portsmouth is a picturesque destination perched on the Atlantic coast. Its dining scene exudes culture and heritage, with seafood remaining a local favourite. We explore 10 of the best restaurants.
The Dolphin Striker is nestled among the many galleries and boutique shops in the historic Portsmouth Harbor. It is named after the spar that was used to protect schooner bowsprits from the attentions of overly playful dolphins. Inspired by the cooking of his grandmother, head chef Scott Massidda aims to serve fantastically presented comfort food. For starters, guests can choose from a wide variety of shellfish, such as lobster macaroni and cheese, and a cocktail trio of shrimp, blue crab, and lobster. Main course specialities include beef Wellington, and Striker chicken and dumplings. This is boneless chicken cooked in a creamy sauce and topped with puff pastry.
