New and Improved Dining

Just in time for spring 15 Point Road has renovated its restaurant and menu


Home remodeling shows are all the rage on HGTV. From Property Brothers to Love It or List It, America loves to see well-loved properties go from out-of-date to modern chic. The same can be said of local restaurants that opt to remodel and update. Diners can continue to frequent their beloved spot and restaurants can continue to do what they do best, serve up delicious eats.

This is exactly what 15 Point Road has accomplished. “We recently took out our carpets and replaced them with a beautiful Australian Cypress Hardwood floor,” explains owner Sean Smith. “We moved a wall to create a larger waitress station and better access to our deck for summertime dining. There are new tables, chairs, booths, paint and hand blown bubble chandeliers.”

Sean thought that this renovation would be an opportune time to introduce some exciting dishes that Chef Christopher Maitland has been working on. For example, the Seafood “En” Brick that’s served over butternut risotto and lobster béchamel (scallops, shrimp and lobster in a crispy shell). For the turf lovers, the Mixed Grill incorporates two lamb chops, marinated steak tips and wild boar cranberry sausage served with risotto cakes.

15 Point Road regulars need not worry, menu favorites are still available. If you notice that there are any past items you miss, let Chef Christopher know. He’ll do his best to recreate them for you. 15 Point Road, Portsmouth. 401-683-3138,
