Ristorante Massimo

Here’s an evening shot of Ristorante Massimo, a beloved fancy restaurant, which is located on Penhallow Street next to Ceres Bakery and near the Post Office building.  This was taken with a wide angle lens in very low lighting conditions, and I had no tripod so I had to make the best of the situation – so I set the camera down, on what I remember as a railroad tie or some piece of wood next to Ceres.  It gave a cool perspective with some texture to the old pavement on the ground, and some spray paint.  I loved the dark blues of the sky and the combination with the lighting and the red colors of the restaurant.  What are your thoughts?

Ristorante Massimo | Portsmouth, NH

Ristorante Massimo is often discussed by locals and foodies as the best “special occasion” restaurant and most romantic place for dinner.  It’s definitely on my list of places to visit, just waiting for an appropriate occasion.

The building is next to the Ceres Bakery on Penhallow Street, and looks very intimate and inviting with its brick entrance at the corner.  Check out the menu and some shots from inside at their website here:  RISTORANTE MASSIMO.

Ceres Bakery | Penhallow Street

Portsmouth is known for its wide array of delicious restaurants.  To the left is Ristorante Massimo (with a happy couple heading in for a bite) – a place I’ve yet to indulge in, but that is definitely on my list.  Ceres Bakery is easily one of the most colorful buildings in town, and they make some good food too.  Took the opportunity with the evening light to snap a self portrait.
