The Common Man | Portsmouth (Uncommon NH Dining)

I thought I’d mix it up a bit today and feature one of my favorite hanging signs.  The Common Man took over the former Victory Restaurant at 96 State Street during 2009, in the historic district near Prescott Park and the Memorial Bridge.  I just love the size of the sign and the blue of the sky against the bricks of the building and the subtlety of the lighting on the sign.  This one is an interesting contrast to the neon sign (another favorite) of The Rosa just across the street – which I’ve included below.

The Common Man is the newest addition to Portsmouth’s vibrant dining scene (replacing the former Victory Restaurant) at 96 State Street.  Rumor has it that they are officially open for business, and judging from the illuminated sign on the evening of August 12th – it’s true.  Looking forward to checking it out.
