Chef Nate Henssler and the team from Portsmith make it their mission to find the best quality and freshest seafood. Henssler, a New Hampshire native, honors the seafood and fisherman from his hometown with bold flavors yet simple plating. Precision yet restraint showcase the natural flavors of our pristine catch. Among the most celebrated restaurant openings of 2017, Portsmith has earned 3 stars from local dining critic, Phil Vettel, among numerous other accolades from critics and local diners.
Portsmith is located in Chicago’s Gold Coast on State Street, just north of Erie, at the ground floor of dana hotel & spa. Corporate happy hours, large format dining, private events, and other catered events are easily accommodated and professionally attended to in our many private spaces.
Menus and ingredients change often to follow local produce and seafood seasonality. Our seafood board, located just upon entering, displays the current selections of oysters, clams, shellfish, and specialty fish.
Portsmith is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a very special weekend brunch. We serve coffee and fresh pastries every morning for passerby’s and guests of dana hotel & spa every morning, one hour before the restaurant opens.
