The Black Trumpet

Ceres Street is one of my favorite spots in Portsmouth – the tall brick buildings line the waterfront and mark the distinction between the historic downtown and its historic working waterfront roots.  The buildings lining this street largely served as warehouses back in Portsmouth’s early heydays when tall ships could have been seen lining the spots where the tugboats now dock.  The Black Trumpet is one of the celebrated restaurant options in this neighborhood and I’ve always loved the appeal of its facade, as well as its intimate setting and interior.

The Black Trumpet on Ceres Street near the tugboats & The Decks is one of my favorite spots for a nice dinner out.  Delicious food, fantastic atmosphere, good view, great service…and it looks so darn cool with its yellow doors and signs on the Ceres St. alleyway.

Ceres Street is the cozy alleyway near Portsmouth’s infamous decks, a must-visit summertime destination.  The alley is home to several local restaurants including The Oar House, Annabelle’s Ice Cream (which recently was named one of the best places for ice cream in the country!), The Black Trumpet, The Dolphin Striker, The Blue Claw, local art galleries and more.

Saturdays will now feature shots of some of my favorite places during the day and during the night, to capture the essence of the changing moods of the city.
