Chris Cunningham Posted August 13, 2006 Share Posted August 13, 2006 Was in NewHampshire for several days and tried a few restaurants. The clear winner in Hampton was called Bonta 603-929-7972 287 Exeter Road. Found this restaurant on the way to my hotel and stopped in to look at the menu. Glad I did! The menu changes daily at this superb restaurant. I sat at the bar and watched as some food came up for 4 older golfers enjoying their dinner came out. They went with the bar menu and their burgers and Pizza looked fantastic. They actually gave me a slice of pizza that had a great deep dish crust and tasty toppings. I started with the Spicy beef Spring Rolls- lightly fried with shitake mushrooms and a spicy dipping sauce $12.00. Then I had a half portion of the Maine Lobster Ravioli $10.00, with fennel cream, crispy leeks and truffle essence--superb! My main course was The Local Halibut with a hazelnut crust, wild rice and a side of lobster sauce, $27.00 Some of the best fish that I have ever had. Also got to try SmuttyNose beer which is brewed in Portsmouth, NH and thought the Porter was one of the best I've had. Liked it so much, I just changed all the beers at DINO to include their Porter. Two other notable restaurants on the area include Agave-mexican bistro in Newburyport,MA--reminded me of my old haunt Anadale except with more options. Great tequila list, decent margartitas(biased since I make the best and cool atmosphere in this quiant seaside town. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
