Bennett's Sandwich Shop

Who among us doesn't love a great sandwich? If you live in the Portsmouth area, Bennett's opened a new downtown shop back in June. On a recent visit, my wife and I were excited to see the new addition. We are familiar with their other location in Kennebunkport, Maine and looked forward to finding out if the Portsmouth shop would be as good.

Copper Door worth a second look

Opening a new restaurant is fraught with challenges including training wait staff, completing inspections and all this while trying to get the food quality right. Our goal is to be fair but also honest when reviewing these establishments. Thinking about the initial few weeks when they are completely mobbed with everyone in the area visiting, it seems only right to revisit. With that in mind my wife and I decided to take another look at the Copper Door in Bedford. After they opened in the spring of 2012 our opinion was one of disappointment. Let's see how they did when we stopped in a few weeks back.

A taste of Italy at the Tuscan Market

Before the holidays crept upon us, we went to the Tuscan Kitchen to pick up a gift card for my in laws. In case you don’t remember, this is a place that I had reviewed back in 2014 and we loved the food. On our way out of the parking lot, we were passing by the Tuscan Market and my wife commented on how busy they were with so many cars. Usually this is a good sign and a signal to at least check a place out and we promised to visit the next time we were in Salem.

The promise of authentic Mexican food at La Cabana in New Boston

What is the biggest problem with Mexican restaurants these days? Many have dishes that are covered in cheese to hide how bad the food really is from their customers. We believe any restauranteur who would like to be a success should start by make authentic dishes with fresh ingredients and the crowds will find you and appreciate the extra effort. This brings us to our latest review, La Cabana Mexican Grill, in New Boston.

A pig out is the order of the day at Goody Coles

I had been trying to figure out where to find decent BBQ in New Hampshire. I then realized that I needed to turn to the resident expert in the northeast, Pigtrip. He suggested Goody Coles in Brentwood and we were on our way.
