48 Hours in Portland & a Review of Bar Lola

The new issue of Maine magazine showed up in my mailbox this week. Tucked in along the articles on Wellness (the theme of the April issue) is Portland in 48 Hours which tracks the wanderings of 4 members of the magazine staff over the same weekend in Portland. The article highlights a plethora of local restaurants and watering holes: Pai Men, Caiola’s, Novare Res, etc. In keeping with the April theme there’s also an article on “restorative foods” and where to source them.

Also this week, Maine magazine’s Eat Maine blog has published a review of Bar Lola.

Confit of rabbit leg falls right off the bone at the slightest touch of the fork and rests neatly by a small pool of silky potato and leek purée, flecked with chopped tarragon. I make proper use of the last of my bread by sopping up any trace of the purée that has been mingling with the juices of the succulent rabbit.
