Portsmith Fresh Fish & Quality Seafood

In this time of uncertainty, we are eternally grateful to our guests and staff who have supported us up to this point. We will be keeping Roots Handmade Pizza open for pick up and delivery during this government mandated closure. For the time being, we ask that if you’d like to support our staff and our business, you may purchase gift cards at thefifty50group.com, you may still order from our locations offering delivery/pick-up, and you are welcome to contact us directly for any other means of support outreach and we’d be happy to facilitate. Our group is fighting for the livelihood of all of our staff, and we’re working on the best ways internally and externally to take care of our people. Although we recognize that this is the right precaution to take, it doesn’t take away the fact that many people will have a hard time making ends meet in the interim. – The Fifty/50 Group

An Elegantly Crafted Seafood Experience This is our story

Portsmith. Named for the notion that seafood is a staple of most port towns and our chefs are the food “smiths” and craftsmen elevating one of nature’s greatest gifts to man.

When working with truly great seafood, we believe in the “less is more” approach. Sometimes the best ingredient is the one left off the plate.



Portsmith’s menus all start with fresh and pure ingredients that taste great and a chef team that is always looking to find something amazing to serve. Our team respects food and cherishes the opportunity to serve great food to our guests.

“Portsmith is an underappreciated jewel of a restaurant in River North.”
“Bao with king crab (Portsmith’s take on a lobster roll) is as delicious as anything drenched in brown butter should be.”

Group Events & Private Dining

Available for semi-private brunch, lunch, happy hour, and dinner bookings; Portsmith is a perfect entertaining destination.
