brunch/lunch in portland
heading up to portland this sunday for noon brunch/lunch before we catch a ferry. any casual new spots or old good ones that stand out?thanks mike
I'm sure others will weigh in, but the brunch at The Front Room on Munjoy Hill is a delight. Am especially fond of the home-made corned beef hash, and the eggs baked with Parmesan, not to mention interesting breads/biscuits/rolls, etc. But either be early, or expect a significant wait: no reservations!
If you are looking for the wharf seafood experience, I like J's Oyster off Commercial Street. Make sure its open on Sunday before you go. A vegetarian alternative is Pepperclub on Middle Street which has a brunch menu on Sunday.
I recently went to local 188 with avid brunch going friends. Its they're favorite brunch spot to date, and i was able to get a Sunday off from work to join them, and was glad I did. They also mention Bonobo a lot, which i've been to for dinner before, but not brunch. Apparently they make great brick oven breakfast pizzas.
