Dining & Lounge
a chef's passion
Portsmith was named for the “notion that seafood is a staple of most port towns and our chefs are the food “smiths” and craftsmen elevating one of nature’s greatest gifts to man”
With a New Hampshire pedigree, Chef Nate started in the kitchen as a young boy – where his love for seafood and his dream to create his masterpieces began. Chef Nate and his team have a high regard for the seafood’s origin and honor it with bold flavors and simple plating. His spin on traditional new England fare is anything but traditional – and his efforts have been lauded by the top food writers, and most importantly, customers who love and appreciate an exceptional meal.
