The Maine Sunday Telegram has reviewed the Dirigo Public House in Yarmouth,
The cider-glazed chicken wings and sweet-savory house salad with spiced almonds are both terrific starters that play well with beer. Don’t miss the eponymous burger, served with a sauce made from smoked onions and tomatoes, and be sure to order it with the onion rings, rather than the overbrowned, underseasoned French fries.
the Press Herald has reviewed the Portland Meatball Company,
Welcome to the Old Port, Portland Meatball Company. To quote “Casablanca,” “I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” Oh, and one more thing, the hours are incredible. Late-night noshers, this could be your new place.
and published a bar review of Union,
Hotel bars have their own magic, and Union is no exception. While the lobby bar, Inkwell, is decent (better for coffee than cocktails) the restaurant bar seating is much nicer. Reservations are suggested if you want a full dinner, but walk-ins are welcome at the up-market bar.
Portland Magazine has reviewed Petite Jacqueline,
Unable to resist authentic French fare on offer, we order the escargots as an appetizer to share. The snails do not come in their shells (a small disappointment soon forgotten) but instead bathe in a buttery garlic and basil concoction filled with tasty button mushrooms. Baked here (and replenished often by our attentive server), the bread is a traditional French baguette, perfect for dipping in the herbed butter sauce.
The Golden Dish has reviewed Bonobo,
We have no shortage of pizza in Portland. From the plethora of pies from Otto ovens all over Greater Portland to the appeal of the big blocks of luscious pies at Slab and lots of others in between, choices abound. One, though, is in a class by itself—and I don’t mean it stands above the rest but rather is one of those places where it’s all about the specialty pie.
and Run for Breakfast has reviewed The Sinful Kitchen.
I ended up getting their last order of chocolate caramel stuffed French toast. It was delicious and rich, and I only managed to eat about 1/4 of it. My only complaint was that the chocolate overpowered the caramel. The staff was super friendly, and we headed home with another few days worth of breakfasts.
