DSIL just sent us this link to a NYtimes article about restaurants in Portland Maine.
The first one reviewed is Hugo's. Back when I had my shop the original owner of this restaurant (named after their son) used to come into my shop. She was so cute and always on a bike. She wanted silver trays.
I have also eaten at Fore street which is very good but small and pricey. Don't know the middle restaurant. But coincidentally we happened to eat at two Commercial street restaurants today. DD and her family at one
and they were done when we joined them so we all went to Becky's of fisherman fame.
DH and I very fondly recall the "Merry Table" in Portland! Pretty little restaurant down a cobble stone street. Sat outside for appetizers and Scrumpy's hard cider and a light dinner. It has been maybe 5 years now but I can tell you exactly what we ate! Mushroom bruschetta, goat cheese appetizer, and a salad with baby greens, proscuitto, figs, and balsamic vinegar. I'm sure there was desert as well
Didn't see it mentioned in the article, would go back if it is still there....This message has been edited. Last edited by: junk collector,
JC are you sure that was the name? There is a restaurant on Dana street which is cobble stone that has ivy all growing on the outside. It is called Vignola. Sounds like their kind of menu. They also have (or had) another restaurant in that area, called Cingue TerreThis message has been edited. Last edited by: lady of shallot,
It's been a fair few years - but they are still online - and it says down on Warf Street. Ah the memories.....
We were up in your neck of the woods on that trip too. Took the Nor'easter up from Boston for a late summer holiday. Then up to Booth Bay Harbor to see the puffins and also to Wells (?) Island for a day trip. Saw as much of Maine as we could squeeze in before moving back out West!
