The Station

1:00 a.m. Curfew has reviewd The Station.

“The Station is located in the sketchy shopping plaza on St. John St. From the outside it looks like you might get knived, but have no fear – this bar has been around for near 20 years and isn’t scary in the least.”

Trip to Back Bay Grill

Travels with Hilary has written a review of Back Bay Grill.

“With all the hype about Portland’s foodie-fave restaurants, you know—555, Evangeline, Hugo’s, Fore Street, Cinque Terre, Bresca—sometimes out-of-sight/out-of-mind Back Bay Grill gets overlooked. It shouldn’t.”
