Anything new in portland?

We've eaten at Hugo's , Fore Street, and 555 ; great places all. Is there any new delicious spot like those three?

  1. I recommend you research Bresca, Evangeline and Caiola.

    1. Highly recommend Caiola's in the West End.

        Agree, all 3 are excellent, but make sure you make a reservation, I've been to both Bresca's and Caiola's recently and all tables were filled.

      2. Im sure its not new- but I had a really wonderful meal at The Street &Co last fall. There was also a Creperie just down the street that was delicious for breakfast.

        1. Maybe not new, but worth trying and a little less fussy. Rachels L'osteria, Pat's Cafe, Dogfish (union station), Milk street, Blue Spoon, Katahdin, The Greek Corner and if you have a moment to drive north Sea Grass Bistro is wonderful in yarmouth

            Who and where is Milk Street ????
            Rachels is osum..
            Is Katahdin still in business? Driven by and it looks deserted.
            When to Johnnies the other night, and had a wonderful meal.

              Milk street is in the regency. I am not familiar with the word osum, katahdin is closed the week of July 4th and reopens the 7th and I don't know Johnnies is that an owner reference or a restaurant. thanks

                Johnnies is a restaurant on Rt 1 in Falmouth next to Walmart.

                  I think "osum" might be "awesome"??????

              We ate at the Greek Corner (former Bandol space) and the food was mediocre and the place was an absolute pigsty.

                Go to Emilitsa on Congress for Greek. It's fabulous.
