Portland dining recommendations

Hello All,

I will be driving up the coast on Route 1 from Boston, eating at clam shacks all the way. Then spending a couple of nights in Portland. I haven't been there in about 4 years. The last time I was there, I had a fantastic meal at Fore Street. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a couple of restaurants that really shows off Portland or Maine cuisine for dinner. I was thinking of Street and Company (but can't get reservations on OpenTable). There's a ton of ethnic places where we're from, so we can limit it to 'American' food. Keep in mind we'll be eating a lot of fried seafood, chowder, and lobster rolls already. So something that showcases a lot of local produce would be appreciated. Blueberries for dessert would be a plus. TIA.
