Today, we’re checking into Southport for a little R&R and exploring. And you’re invited!
Artisan Restaurant: According to their website, “The menu at Artisan encourages you to eat well and experience cuisine influenced by the rhythm of New England’s seasons and farmstead offerings”. Now if that doesn’t sound appealing, then nothing does. If you’re looking for that classic comfort of New England for your afternoon bite, look no further than Artisan! They offer lunch and dinner, including lunch price fix, and a wide variety of scrumptious plates like duck confit risotto, grilled calamari, Hamdem CT ricotta gnocchi, prime hanger steak, and so much more. They even offer a list of purveyors on their home page so that you know exactly where your food is coming from locally. This place has got it all!
Paci Restaurant: As all GGs know, food is one of our favorite things, so here’s another dining option for your Southport excursion! Paci offers “classic Italian cuisine” as well as seasonal menus showcasing all the fresh and local produce and meats around. As they only offer dinner, dessert, and wine menus, Paci has to be your finale act for a day of Southport wandering. Their menu is mouth watering, serving an amalgamation of dishes like Carpaccio, shrimp cocktail, oysters, and various salads, along with some classic Italian favorites like sautéed hot peppers with anchovies, rigatone alla Bolognese, chicken piccata, veal Milanese, and the list goes on. So before you make your Southport departure, be sure to come here for dinner!
The Gray Goose Cafe: In case you haven’t had enough food to last a week, we’ve got one last stop for you in the restaurant department! The Gray Goose strives to offer the cozy New England charm with classic Manhattan sophistication, providing a “rich mix of New England conviviality and British pub spiritedness, of buttoned-up English charm and loose-tie New York attitude”. There are fresh and poppy flavors as well as down home comfort foods – seriously, they cover ALL the bases. Their menu includes lobster macaroni, short rib grilled cheese, ahi tuna tacos, crackling calamari salad, crab cake benedict, steak frites…we need to stop before we faint from hunger pains.
Kasson Jewelers: Need a little souvenir from your visit? Kasson Jewelers is a premier jewelry store in Southport, specializing in Personalized Jewelry as well as elegant and dazzling pieces that you never knew you needed, until now. From rings to earrings to necklaces and more, you will definitely leave with more than you need. Their custom design page explains their process in steps, including consultation, wax carving, casting, hand fabrication, stone setting, and finishing, and they also offer the perfect selection for up and coming brides as well as men’s jewelry. Their website alone is leaving us spinning, but that’s okay, because diamonds are a girls best friend, right?
That’s all for this time! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
