Dinner in Portland: Help

In the next few weeks, we will have the opportunity to dine in Portand for one night, a Friday. We have reservations for Fore St., Hugo's and 555. Any thoughts of which of the three we should choice.

    I'd pick Fore Street if I could only go to one of the three.

      555 was wonderful

      Fore was a disappointment

      Hugo is on my list for next visit.

        I'd go with 555 - very good food in a relaxed atmosphere. Fore St is single large room with open hearth. Not necessarily a bad thing, but does tend to be very busy and noisy. Atmosphere kind of reminds me of very upscale pizza place with open brick oven. Check board for Hugos comments, I agree with most of them -- food is excellent and beautifully presented, but very precious, and small portions.
