Cheap Eats & BYOB

The Portland Phoenix has published a Portland cheap eats guide, a list of 20 destinations where you can eat well and tread lightly on your wallet.

2018 is already more than halfway in the books, and it’s been yet another year of explosive growth for the Portland dining scene. While there’s no shortage of splurge-worthy area meals to sink one’s teeth into, the hunt for cheap eats is as challenging as ever.

Nevertheless, there are a handful of ways to eat relatively well around Portland without breaking the bank or meandering aimlessly around the grocery store. As much as we’d love to portray otherwise, foie gras, caviar and wine pairings do not an everyday option make for the majority of us. Here’s what we’re seeking out when money’s tight.

Also, Up Portland has published a list of BYOB establishments (page 10). I’d recommend they add The Well in Cape Elizabeth to their list. Up Portland is primarily a print publication. I picked up my copy at the West End location of Other Side Delicatessen.
