Flavors & More magazine has published an article on their culinary adventures in Portland. The article mentions Local 188, J’s Oyster Bar, Standard Baking, Portland Lobster Company, Two Fat Cats, Eve’s, and The Lobster Shack.
At first glance, Portland, Maine reminds me of a mini Portland Oregon – very few chain restaurants, mostly sustainable kitchens, authentic bakeries and trendy cafes, coffee bars and serious burger joints. Locally-grown ingredients preferred. Guests sit at high tops and couches and almost everyone is sipping local craft beers, a pride factor in this area of Maine. And yes, the tradition of lobster joints is still abundant and a lesson in how to preserve an honored New England tradition of lunch on the pier.
