Portland Maine restaurants for seniors

This is a first post on a recommendation to this site from first off thank you to all in advance. I am looking for Portland Maine restaurants that active seniors may be interested in on an upcoming vacation in August. Have been coming to Portland for many years and some of our favorites have since closed down. Handicapped accessibility is helpful. Open to suggestions for a more "local Maine experience". Have printed several recommendations from prior posts and can't wait for our vacation!

  1. What restaurants were your favorites that have closed? That will be a good clue as to what you find appealing.

    1. very hard to recommend when we do not know what you like !!!!!

      1. I feel the sword of Damocles hanging over me with these recommendations. Better ask Dioniceous. The oracle saidthere is a Greek place on Forrest Ave.

          As David Byrne would say, "stop making sense!"

            Dimillo's? wouldn't be my choice, but they tend to cater to an older crowd. If you're looking to avoid a touristy place, I'd look elsewhere though

        2. I bet the Village Cafe was definitely one of the closed restaurants referred to.

          1. I may have mislead by saying multiple favorites closed I apologize. It was Village Cafe. Also we enjoyed a Buffet type Chinese and Capt. Newicks. I have taken down some recommendations on recent posts, and would appreciate any further. Thank you
