new Portland restaurants

  • m

Anyone have some suggestions for good new dining in the Portland area? I feel like I have been going to the same few places (Flatbread, Ribolitta, Front Room, Ricettas, etc.) over and over again, and am looking for some new places to try. One thing, I am a vegetarian so I can't go to places that are too heavy into meat/seafood. Thanks!

  1. YOUR BEST BET IS THE 'PEPPERCLUB' NEAR THE OLD PORT. THEY SPECIALIZE IN VEGETARIAN.

    1. Try the Blue Spoon on Congress St. They always have at least one vegetarian dish.

      1. Thank you for your suggestions. The PepperClub is already a favorite of mine. I have tried Blue Spoon for lunch, but found their dinner menu pretty limited for a veggie. However, I LOVE the food at the Front Room down the street. I was more curious about places that have opened up within the past year or so. I tried Caiola's last week, and their pumpkin lasagna was delicious, as was my veggie soup.

        1. Have you tried "The greek Corner" on Upper Exchange. Decent hummus and olives and they have vegetarian moussaka.

          1. Tho I haven't been there myself, I've heard good things about Bar Lola on the Munjoy Hill end of Congress St. (across the st fromBlue Spoon).
