Eatery/market expanding into Portsmouth
By Jason Schreiber - Union Leader Correspondent

Joe Faro knew it had potential as soon as he spotted an abandoned movie theater on Route 1.

As the owner and chief food taster at Tuscan Kitchen & Tuscan Market, Faro has been looking for opportunities to expand his growing business that offers customers a real Italian experience.

“I’ve been looking around Portsmouth for years. I find the market to be a good market,” he said.

Faro’s company broke ground earlier this month on plans to open a new 16,000-square-foot Tuscan Kitchen and Tuscan Market.
