And there's always Warren's http://www.lobsterhouse.com/ if you want a lobstah and endless salad bar

My wonderful wife Colette has tired of waiting for a table at Warren's, any suggestions in Portsmouth or Kittery for lobster where we can reserve?

John, I don't know if you are still in the area, but we had a very nice dinner last night at Latitudes, at Wentworth-by-the-Sea in New Castle. The setting is beautiful, overlooking the marina and the bay. The lobster preparation was unusual--they wood-grilled the tail and steamed the claws in one of those chinese bamboo steamers, which was the way it was presented at the table. My ahi tuna was very rare, served with heirloom tomatoes.

Nope, we're long gone, by the time you read this I'll be figuring out what's open for lunch in Florence. But thanks. We ate at Capt'n Simeon's and did very well indeed. But thanks very much.

Not much has changed in Portsmouth. There is a fierce Portland contingent on this board--you may want to research some of the Portland postings. I liked Fore Street and 555 and the fries at Duckfat.

My only comments on our dinner recently at Captain Simeon’s in Kittery Point are that the lobstah there is sure getting pricey and the clams over-battered. I always insist that wine is just an alcohol delivery vehicle; well with the Cap’n, clams are simply a fat-delivery vehicle. Our bill with one bottle of rather nice Sauv Blanc was $111.12 before tip.
