In its May 28, 2018 edition, People magazine named Portland, Maine the number one foodie city in its list of the “Top 10 New Foodie Cities” from coast-to-coast. Portland, dubbed a hip waterfront scene, is the place for fresh seafood, local brews, and trendy delicacies. Being among the list of cities with the most breweries per capita in the United States and the exploding food scene this area is known for, it’s no wonder that Portland made People’s list as number one.
Our southern Maine office, conveniently located at 36 Danforth Street, is set in the heart of Portland, with endless restaurants all around.
Here are some of our favorite nearby eateries:
|Eventide, a seafood joint serving lobster rolls, cocktails, a raw bar, and New England fare||Honey Paw, a contemporary bistro serving noodles, Asian bites, and local craft beer|
|Boda, a late-night eatery serving Thai street food, including noodles and skewered meat and veggies||Scales, a seaside venue offering a raw bar, local seafood, and classic New England comfort food|
|Duckfat, a European-inspired café and sandwich shop offering duck-fat Belgian fries|
