The meal assembly business Make Thyme for Dinner, and Where is Jenner’s Mind, a blog, have been added to the map. Also a new Brazilian/Indian restaurant going in on Congress St has been added to the Under Construction list.
New2Maine.com has reviewed Hot Suppa!
The waitress was cheery and attentive . . . The check was a touch high for a regular lunch spot (~$24, including a soda and a hot chocolate and tax, but not the tip), but I would not be surprised if Amber and I end up there a couple or three times a month.
Local Foodie is working on a project this year to create “an interactive map that represents all aspects of the food system and can be used by consumers, producers, distributors, and everyone in between to make connections with local food.” It sounds like a great idea. I look forward to seeing it come together.
As you’ve probably noticed Portland Food Map looks a little different today. The old homepage, which served the site well when it first launched, has been redesigned to provide more space for the news updates and better access to site features.
Along with the new homepage design comes a few additional capabilities for you including an RSS feed and the ability to comment on the posts, as well as making it easier for me to post news items. Also you can now search 400+ Portland food websites right from the homepage.
Here’s a brief PFM feature history:
August 7, 2007 – PFM Launched
October 9, 2007 – Category Street Maps
November 28, 2007 – Portland Food Search
February 2, 2008 – Sunday Brunch List
April 7, 2008 – Event Calendar
January 1, 2009 – the new homepage blog
I hope you like the new homepage design. Have a Happy New Year!
The Portland Phoenix has reviewed Arabica.
