Portland after 9pm, before a 90 mile drive

Gheph Aug 30, 2010 12:49 PM

We land in Portland about 8:30 Wednesday night, and were hoping to grab a decent bite before heading north. After searching the board, I can tell that Duck Fat is what I would've wanted were they going to be open at that time on that day, but alas. Is Fore St. likely to have a wait at that hour? Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Jeff

    You could just take a chance and make a reservation at Fore St (you could be there at 9 if your plane lands at 8:30.) But that might be a little formal for grabbing a bite before hitting the road--I might suggest Local 188 instead, as it's a little more casual and has a good range of tapas, small plates, and big piles of food.

      Or, even better, Sonny's,which is local 188's new place on Exchange Street. Excellent for noshing and regular dining. Great menu...

        lol, as I read the post before and saw the word "noshing" I thought why not Nosh too. The sandwiches at Nosh are better than the paninis at Duckfat and the fries are pretty close.

        Grace is also open until at least 10:30 if you're looking for a meal meal.
