With the days getting colder here in New Hampshire, it is important to keep those bellies warm! Here is a round-up of some delicious restaurants to check out on your next date night or girls night out:
Bangkok Street Thai Kitchen
Serving up an authentic menu of Thai street food and dim sum Bangkok Street Thai Kitchen ‘s moody décor and signature cocktails make it the perfect spot for date night or girls night out. Our favorites were the Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings), Crispy Chicken Wings, Bangkok Noodle and Beef Khoa Soi Curry. The menu is packed with gluten free and vegetarian options and spicy level can be catered to every dish. 2454 Lafayette Road, Portsmouth, NH 03801
With a dreamy backdrop of a working waterfront and picturesque views of the Memorial Bridge, Buoy Shack offers a locally-sourced menu with the freshest seafood and ingredients. We love how kid and pet friendly the restaurant is. Our favorites are the Lobster Empanadas, Clam Chowder, Lobster BLT and Fried Fish Sandwich. The Killer Bee, Aperol Spritz, and Build-Your-Own Margarita add to the beautiful ambiance. Follow them on Instagram for fun weekend events and weekly specials (@buoyshack). 1 Badgers Island West, Kittery, ME 03904
Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club
Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club aims to honor both of these traditions — serving as a community connecting point for arts and culture, and as a world-class “listening room” built for music lovers and the inspiring artists who perform here. Full dinner service is available two hours before the first show time and 30 minutes before second showtime. Enjoy some Southern classics with a seacoast twist like Crawfish Cakes, Salmon Etouffee, and finish with a sweet treat of chocolate beignets. Stocked with a full beer, wine, and featured cocktail menu it is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy live music. Tickets can range from $10-65 depending on the show. Check out their events page for upcoming shows and tickets. 135 Congress Street, Portsmouth, NH 03801
