Boothbay Harbor, Northeast Harbor recs?
My wife and I will be staying two nights near Boothbay and three in Northeast Harbor. I searched the board, but can't find current recommendations (or places to avoid). Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
Northeast Harbor: I'd kill for the flatbread with tallegio cheese/black trumpet mushrooms/parsely/truffle oil served at Redbird Provisions. I've only been for lunch, but everything I've had has been excellent. Also like Bassa, tucked behind Shaw's Jewelry, for excellent Mediterranean-inspired tapas. Fat Belli Deli makes great sandwiches.
Boothbay Harbor: Cafe at the Coastal Botanical Gardens is very good. Bets for fried fish. Traditionally, Barters Island General Store has had the best lobster roll. Ports of Italy for Italian fare (chef owned restaurant). Thistle Inn, always reliable.
The dining room at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor is terrific, and you can check ou the menu on their website.
We've always enjoyed Andrew's Harborside in Boothbay, and the Downeast Ice Cream Factory is a must ! Not to mention Bett's Fish Fry!
