My brother is coming to Boston from Kansas next week and can't wait to drive to Maine to induldge in some real seafood and lobster. Where's the best lobster in or near Portland? Thanks in advance.
I suppose 36 degrees isn't cold enough for you? That's what Casco Bay is right now.
As for best lobster, any dump in Maine can steam a lobster. Much as I don't like either place, you can go to Cap'n Newick's in S.Portland for a place where they call your number out over the loudspeaker, and most everything besides the lobster is fried (most of the other of these types of places are closed for the winter), or you could go to DeMillo's on the Portland waterfront, for basically the same food (but for more money), but nicer atmosphere. Most really nice restaurants in Maine don't serve plain steamed lobster.
