It’s time for Restaurant Week again, only this time it’s restaurants in Portsmouth, N.H., and the seacoast area that are hosting.
Dining along the Maine-New Hampshire border is a two-way proposition. Mainers often cross the bridge to check out what’s happening in Portsmouth, and New Hampshire residents venture north to see what Maine restaurants have to offer.
This year, there are four Maine restaurants participating in Portsmouth’s Nov. 8-17 Restaurant Week: Anneke Jans, Black Birch and Tulsi in Kittery and the Stage Neck Inn in York.
In all, 49 restaurants in the seacoast area have signed on to participate. They’ll be offering three-course lunches for $16.95 and three-course dinners for $29.95. To see a full list of restaurants and what they’ll have on their menus, go to restaurantweek
