Tasty Travels Gossip: Portsmouth

Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels recently filmed an episode focusing on Route 1A in New England. As part of the episode Rachael visited the Blue Mermaid, although the episode will feature several other Portsmouth area restaurants, including Jumpin’ Jay’s Fish Cafe and the Muddy River Smokehouse, with voice over provided by RR. The show used two camera crews that traveled from Portland, Maine to Rhode Island. As part of the filming, Rachael also went to the Oarweed in Ogunquit, Maine.

According to the article, the owner of the Blue Mermaid was excited about the visit from Rachael Ray because the restaurant was having a tough year due to construction next door:
"I told Rachael she was my light at the end of the tunnel," said Logan. "She’s exactly how she is on the show - very personable and friendly and very knowledgeable of foods."

Ray was served a spinach salad, plantain-encrusted grouper and guava-braised beef short ribs. And the review?

"She loved it!" said Logan. "She said we didn’t charge enough for the food."

Rachael confessed that she spent $4,000 in downtown shops before eating her lunch at the Blue Mermaid. So she really does buy stuff when she goes to those shops in Tasty Travels episodes!
