Portsmouth day trip

Joanie | Jul 26, 2016 05:27 AM

Quick day trip to Portsmouth on Sat. started us off at the newish café Profile Coffee Bar around the corner from Row 34. It's a nice place and the baked goods looked good but we just got iced coffee. It was fine, not the best I've ever had. While the weather was still sunny, we sat on the deck of the Old Ferry Landing which was better than I thought it would be. A little overpriced but we split a clam plate w/ fries and slaw for $20 and it was quite good (excellent tartar sauce). Pretty views from the deck, decent service, a nice quick snack before touring the Governor Langdon House. The weather started getting funky and unfortunately the Sat. evening fair in the square was canceled. After more wandering around, we sat at the bar of Cure and had good cocktails and an excellent app of basically a bruschetta w/ mushrooms, parmasan, truffle cream sauce ($9.95). So good, and nice people working there. Waited out the storm and walked over to Mombo while it was still raining only to be told in a not so apologetic way they were closed for a private party, that was a bummer. So we went back to the tried and true Black Trumpet and snagged the last two seats at the bar for a small plate of meatballs and an app of smoky gnocchi w/ pork belly. Wow, that was the best gnocchi ever. With a wine and a beer it came to about $38. A. ended with a hot dog from Gilley's, can't believe he'd never gone.
