Green Story

As one of the premier Portsmouth destinations, Pocos Bow Street Cantina is always looking for ways to set itself apart. With a huge rennovation scheduled soon for the deck section of the restaurant, Pocos has equally huge ambitions for instituting new and exciting green initiatives and products -- much like its new sister operation, Two Ceres Street -- including more efficient windows, corn-based plastic cups, and a menu with a much heavier emphasis on local sourcing. This is not so say that Pocos has nothing to build on; quite the contrary. A proud member of Seacoast Eat Local, Pocos has already established stringent recycling policies for everything from paper and plastic to their used frying oil, installed a super-efficient fireplace to replace their older heating system (and has plans to install a second, even more efficient pump heating system in the near future), as well as steadily replacing all lights with high-efficiency CFL bulbs throughout the restaurant.

Pocos has a long and proud history of donating to a variety of local organizations and events, partnering with the likes of fellow GA BP Portsmouth Brewery in an effort to get more people to eat local. Also, Pocos recently took advantage of a total kitchen overhaul to install a much more efficient ventillation system -- great for the cooks in the kitchen on those hot summer days on the decks! For their huge deck rennovation project, Pocos and Two Ceres alike will be seeking LEED certification, making them the only deck-side establishment to achieve such a status.
