Fore Street prices?
Can anyone tell me an average dinner at Fore Street for two adults assuming maybe a couple drinks or moderately priced glasses of wine each? I don't even know if they'll do gift certificates as the website doesn't mention, but I'm trying to arrange for a gift meal for a couple going to Portland. If there's some sort of gift certificate option, it doesn't have to 100% cover everything, but a VAST majority of the bill would be ideal and I can't seem to find any discussion of the prices. Would $200 work?
I have to gently dissagree...after several experiences at both Fore and 555 ...at least to me...555 seems far less professional both in food and service than Fore street...
Now...all things consiodered we are discussing comparisons between two places that operate at a pretty high level...I've just felt the food at Fore Street and the service level is better...two weeks ago...at Fore...sweetbrteads and braised pork bellies...and a pork chop fcor $35 and I didnt care.
I san compare the ambiance/service and food with other restaurants on a national level...
555...Brunch a week later...stale baked goods, innattentive but the bloody mary was superb. A good restaurant for Porland but just can't get enthisiastic about them outside of Maine...
PS:By the way... Rabelais ...the cook book store...now thats a business that is absolutely world class...any visit to Portland requires a visit...and easy walk after breakfast or after eating 3 or 4 croissants at Superior Bakery. Yea..I know
