Portland Maine Saturday Lunch

jbealz May 17, 2012 11:58 AM

I am visiting the Portland Maine area for a weekend - I have my dinner and brunch plans made, but would like a Saturday lunch venue. I would prefer something bistro-ish, perhaps with a slow-food/local tie. No Gritty McDuff's, no Geno's chower house etc. please.

Thanks in advance!

    I'll throw out the obligatory Duckfat. Not exactly bistro-ish, but pretty far from Gritty's....

      Here's a few more - all have some outdoor seating if it's a nice day.
      Downtown (Arts District)
      Petite Jacqueline - As bistro-ish as you're going to get
      Local 188

      Old Port
      Grill Room - I don't really think of this as a "bistro" but a good lunch.
      Farmer's Table

      You will not be rushed in any of these places at lunch time. Note: Saturday might be a "brunch" menu at some of these.
