We are renting a beach house in Rye, NH for a week and are looking for suggestions in the area for places not to miss.

On my list so far for Rye are Petey's, Lago's for ice cream, Rye Harbor Lobster Pound and 603 Burgers seems worth a look. Other good suggestions for Rye? What about good places for breakfast/brunch -- Serenity Market?

In Portsmouth, I'm thinking of Popovers on the Square and Friendly Toast for brunch; Martingale Wharf, Portsmouth Brewery, Jumpin Jays, Blue Mermaid... Will have our well behaved 4 year old with us, so needs to be somewhat kid friendly, but not dumbed down. don't need a dedicated kids' menu.

Would also welcome suggestions for good butchers/fish markets/gourmet markets for the few instances we may be cooking in. Also suggestions in Kittery, ME or up the Maine coast within 45 mins or so for good lobster rolls (prefer buttered CT style to cold lobster salad w/mayo) and lighthouse spotting.
