Lexie’s Joint (212 Islington St., Portsmouth; 603/319-4055; dinner for two $25) is a little burger place with a great philosophy and an admirable commitment to cooking from scratch. Their burgers aren’t the typically obscene American flesh bombs—you can have one with french fries, fried pickles, and beer and still stand up afterward. They also have a killer collection of culinary books that I like to browse through while waiting.” —Evan Mallet, Black Trumpet Bistro
