Elsmere, Silly’s, Food Trucks

The Press Herald has published a review of Silly’s,

And you’ll never see a more funky array of everything from Mardi Gras beads to retro light fixtures, oddball artwork and even a lamp straight out of “A Christmas Story.” Long live Silly’s!

and a bar review of Elsmere.

Elsmere is not just a BBQ joint, it’s a neighborhood restaurant that’s keen on giving back to the community and sticking around for generations. Owners Adam Powers and Jeremy Rush work the line every night, are eager to be part of the South Portland family of restaurants and take a lot of pride in their product. The bar scene is cozy and pleasingly boisterous. Patrons come to watch the game, drink beer, but most of all, chow down on excellent BBQ. There will likely be a 30-minute wait on weekend nights.

Today’s paper also includes the latest installment of the What Ales You beer column and a food truck guide.
