Does anyone know what happened to this place?

    According to the Portland Food Map they went out of business"

    "Chef et al. went out of business in May 2009. They billed themselves as a "casual New England bistro". To learn more about Chef et al. read this profile from The Maine Switch (4/16/2008)"

    I guess they were not doing the business needed. Some people complained about the location.

    I only read their statement of purpose off their website and remember it sounded a bit odd, something about the customers being integral to the business like employees.

      Oh, I must have missed it on the food map site. Thank you for telling me. I went there a few times and just found the food too sweet for my taste but I had heard some very positive things from others.
