Drink responsibly and have a wonderful New Year.
Remember it is much cheaper to take a taxi than get caught for DUI or possibly hurting yourself or someone else !
This past Saturday I stopped into one of my favorite restaurants in Portsmouth, NH, MN Pastry, and noticed they now have a wine bar in the back of the restaurant, which is elevated. A wide selection of wine, and a chef in that section of the restaurant with a full menu, I ate at the regular restaurant, but I hope to bring friends in the future and eat at the wine bar.
In addition they serve brunch with reservations recommended. If you like crepes, you are at the right spot, both of the owners are from France and know all about crepes !
Portsmouth is a great walking city with much history, and is right on the coast ! The website is; mnpastry.com
Yesterday on my way home I stopped at a new restaurant that has been open for about one month. Enjoyed my meal and service was very good. I had the grilled veggies Quezadilla which I would order again. Of course being winter there was no outdoor dining, and I don't know if that will be an option. The service and food was excellent.
Quite a full menu, unfortunately there is no website at this time.
Address is; 292 Route 101, Amherst, NH 03031

An article I recently read gave the states with the highest consumption per capita, and most of us love wine, and there is such a abundance of wine out there today that it is mind boggling !
The winning state is Washington, DC, they drink more wine than any other state, drinking 34 bottles each ! New Hampshire came in second with 26 bottles each per capita ! For a small state like New hampshire I was surprised at the amount consumed in New Hampshire
