Dining in Portland and Portsmouth

We will be in Portland and Portsmouth at the beginning of February. We will be dining at Fore St in Portland and York Harbor Inn in York. Any suggestions, no thai, italian, or chinese. I look forward to suggestions. We will be staying downtown, but will have a car.

  1. Frog and Turtle in Westbrook, ME is good and casual if you want to get out of town. In Portland, the usual suspects: Caiola's, Bay Bay Grill, etc., and Hugo's for a very upscale (and not inexpensive) dinner.

    If you want to travel a bit south, Joshua's in Wells is good too. I think they do the "good ingredients done well" better than Fore Street, but I'm sure opinions will differ.

    1. Bar Lola, in Munjoy Hill, is an excellent choice -- just had a lovely dinner there this evening. Emilitsa, on Congress in the downtown, is also great.
