Blog : Hit the Decks with Poco's Bow Street Cantina

By Katelyn | Apr 30, 2015 | in

The decks are open, the margaritas are flowing, and Poco’s Bow Street Cantina is ready for summer! Portsmouth’s longest running restaurant now has, not one, but both decks open for guests to take in the views of the Piscataqua River. They have been voted Best of Portsmouth Deck Dining for four years in a row by Taste Magazine and the decks are sure to be a hit once again this year.

Poco’s provides a comfortable dining experience in Downtown Portsmouth, where residents and visitors enjoy award winning Mexican food and drinks, but it is not your average city restaurant. Poco’s Bow Street Cantina strives to reduce their environmental footprint every day through a continuously growing list of sustainability initiatives. The restaurant has a comprehensive recycling system and recycles everything possible, while also composting 100% of their food waste. In addition, Poco’s has installed motion sensor lights and a more efficient ventilation system to cut down on energy use throughout the building and decks.

At the same time, Poco’s has taken great strides to create a menu focused on locally sourced food products. The kitchen only uses natural, hormone and antibiotic free meat and poultry in their dishes, and is a proud member of Seacoast Eat Local. The organization works to connect residents with locally grown products and create a sustainable local food network between growers and consumers.

Poco’s is ready to take on their busy season and is starting off with a bang with Hit the Decks on Friday, May 8. The Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce will sponsor Hit the Decks, a celebratory day for enjoying dining on decks and al fresco patios throughout Portsmouth, which will also include special discounts at area hotels, shops, and other businesses. Not only is Poco’s participating in the all-day event, but the restaurant will also host the sponsor party from 3-5 p.m.

Mark your calendar and don’t forget to enjoy the decks in Downtown Portsmouth on Friday, May 8! If you’re stuck at work and can’t make it to Hit the Decks then stop by Poco’s throughout the summer to enjoy everything they have to offer.
