AWESOME RESTAURANTS / BARS IN MAINE

I love great food and drinks. Here's some of my faves in Maine!
  1. The Black Birch
    Kittery. Fantastic little place! Awesome food, extensive beer list and great cocktails. Wonderful atmosphere and staff.
  2. Anju Noodle Bar
    Kittery. Outstanding Asian food in a comfortable, friendly space. The ramen is delicious and the homemade kimchi is killer!
  3. The Wallingford Dram
    Kittery. Cozy little bar, carefully crafted cocktails and small bites. Creative twists on classics and awesomely creative new ideas.
  4. Central Provisions
    Portland. Another small space with innovative yet accessible cuisine. Menu changes frequently based on what's in season.
  5. Gelato Fiasco
    Portland. Delicious and creative gelato shop. Classic flavors as well as envelope pushers like Sriracha Peanut!
  6. The Holy Donut
    Portland. Handmade donuts made with Maine potatoes in the batter. Dense, delicious cake donuts with fresh and creative flavors (mojito, sweet potato, dark chocolate sea salt)
  7. The Speckled Ax
    Portland. Coffee bar and roaster. They wood fire roast their coffee beans and meticulously brew exotic beans to bring out their complexity. Also, try a Fruity Pebbles latte!
  8. Bard Coffee
    Portland. Another delightful coffee bar. Comfortable space with well crafted drinks. Try the Vietnamese iced coffee in the summer!
  9. Slab
    Portland. Amazing pizza and Sicilian street food. The "Hand Slab" is a one pound slice of fluffy Sicilian pizza that is impossible to put down.
  10. Tacos Escobar
    Portland. Fun little Tex-Mex spot. Delicious tacos with more filling options than the usual spots.
  11. Vena's Fizz House
    Portland. Mocktail and cocktail bar with small bites. Extremely creative non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks that dig deep into their massive collection of bitters. Also sells new and vintage bar ware, bitters and mixers.
  12. Thistle Pig
    South Berwick. Awesome relaxed atmosphere with great creative food and drinks. Terrific brunch on Sunday's. The bread and butter pickle Bloody Mary is awesome!
