CAVA TAPAS & WINE BAR

BOT2018 AlFrescoDining

You’ll enter your own little oasis when dining outdoors at Cava. The cozy space is located near the center of town on a pedestrian-only brick alleyway. Wooden tables are shrouded in greenery, with lantern lighting providing the perfect atmosphere for guests to share tapas, sip wine, and enjoy the company of family and friends. “You feel like you’re removed in this nook that I think is pretty special,” says Chef Gregg Sessler. 10 Commercial Alley, Portsmouth, N.H., 603-319-1575, cavatapasandwinebar.com
