Review of The Picnic Basket

The Picnic Basket received 3 stars from this week’s Eat & Run review in the Press Herald.

We tried the roast beef special, which consisted of roast beef, horseradish sauce, lettuce and tomato on a fresh sourdough roll. Everything seemed really fresh, and the horseradish sauce was terrific. It’s the kind that will clear your sinuses.

If your pockets are really light, there are hot dogs for just $1.60 and chili dogs for $2.

  1. Hi – This is a bit off topic but I think it is an important element of dining in Portland –
    Hi – Not really on topic but maybe of interest. I recently have become temporarily confined to a wheelchair. My wife and i enjoy eating/dining out. We have tried to find a list of handicapped accessible restaurants in the Portland area. We tried your site (Portland Food map) and had no luck; tried the Maine Restaurant Association – was told to search the web and look at individual websites. Unfortunately, most of the restaurants we’ve tried are not truly accessible.
    The worst situation is where a restaurant assures you over the phone that they are accessible but really are not. Good example is Becky’s Diner – try to fit a wheelchair into a booth!
    I am leaving the wheelchair soon so it is not an ongoing personal concern. However, what about all of those people who are permanently disabled? Providing a list of accessible restaurants would be a major service to the community.
    I don’t even know who assures compliance with laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act or Maine’s handicapped accessibility laws.
    Very frustrating.
