Rudi’s

20 High St, Portsmouth, NH

Rudi’s in downtown Portsmouth is great for any occasion, formal or casual. We love their menu because it covers all preferences and some great anti-inflammatory options. It has that darker steak house atmosphere that gives you an intimate feel inside. The bar is a more casual and fun spot and the outdoor dining is in a nice quiet spot behind the restaurant, so it’s private. Our favorites include: Corona Steam Rope-Grown Mussels, Crispy Brussels Sprouts Caesar, Ahi Tuna Street Tacos, “Smash” Burger, Baby Kale Buddah Bowl, Ahi Poke Bowl, Creamy Cashew Soba Bowl, and the Hanger Steak. So many great options!

The owner has been honored by many awards and is a James Beard Best Chef Northeast Finalist 2019-2020. What we love about it is the unique and healthy twist they put on many traditional dishes. Their salsa, guac, and chips is amazing. Great vibe and good friendly service. Our favorites include: Kale Salad with gluten free corn bread croutons, Tacos: Fried Avocado, Fish, and Carnitas, Enchiladas: Black Turtle Bean, Adobo Shirmp and Braised Beef, and of course the Margaritas.
