Nearly eight month after a fire closed the venerable restaurant, Portsmouth Gas Light is just about ready to re-open!

According to their Facebook page, they should be ready for customers on Wednesday, August 3rd. Closed since a December 9th fire, the restaurant has spent the past several months repairing and renovating in preparation for this opening-- a new ceiling, new brick oven, and new air conditioning system are just a few of the updates you'll find.

Need a job? They're hiring too! Portsmouth is a better place when the Gas Light is hopping and the smell of their pizzas lures you in.
