Made the trek to northern New England this summer? Survived the lines at the Kittery tolls? Kids complaining in the back seat? Are we there yet? Just 51 more miles and you're in Portland. Now, is your stomach growling? Got the hunger for some seafood while your visiting the city? Looking for a place with all the options: like crabs, crab cakes clams, a steamed lobster dinner, steamers, scallops, shrimp, calamari, haddock, mussels, fried fish, clam chowder and on and on and on? Your choices of dining places here will run in the hundreds as you might imagine. Yes, if you are planning on eating during the peak hours, there might be lines, but know the wait will be worth it. We stopped by the Portland Lobster Company the other day and took in a late lunch. If you want to be out in the bright sun with water to your left and right and lobster boats along side, this might be the place for you. For a boy who got his first taste of seafood via frozen fish sticks on Friday nights, I've made some strides in my seafood dietary habits.
If you are in a lobster etc. mood here, drop me a line.
Not a fishing line, a note, an email, a call.
I've got some wonderful suggestions.
And YELP doesn't even pay me.
I might just join you for dinner.
... or breakfast, or brunch, or lunch. or a late night snack.
Have I told you I hunger for seafood?
YUm seafood---yes indeed. we are a port city too.ReplyDelete
A heart warming post indeed, greetings!ReplyDelete
You would probably like eating out in Livorno...ReplyDelete
I may be a Midwesterner, but I do know the difference between Mrs. Paul's Fishsticks and fresh seafood. Your list of seafood made my mouth water, but I'm not likely to be able to satisfy this hunger. We are over 1000 miles from any sea.ReplyDelete
Hm, I am almost tempted. I took a trip to Maine back in '85 and I can say that I ate very well. Doesn't sound like much has changed.ReplyDelete
I love that line about the frozen fish sticks. Me too, that's how was introduced to seafood. I didn't taste a lobster until I was 21 years old. That first taste did it, I was hooked.ReplyDelete
Yummy. That's all I have to say.ReplyDelete
Friday night fish sticks - I remember it well! I would love to be out at that place right now!ReplyDelete
I was in your neck of the woods a few years ago. Enjoyed a few, wonderful seafood meals. If I get back there....I will send you an email :)ReplyDelete
craving seafood now. thanks.ReplyDelete
Sometime a lunch would be good, for the Maine Blog gang...ReplyDelete
I'm actually working on moving back down! Perhaps your blog has something to do with that!
Dang, Birdman! I've had dinner (Salmon! And even homemade sorbet!) and you've made me hungry all over again.ReplyDelete
I love good seafood. Sounds like Maine is the place to visit.ReplyDelete
But, when I get a bad plate, it takes me 6 months to eat it again. Don't think that would happen in Maine!
Sounds very inviting! Seafood fresh from the ocean sounds very, very good.ReplyDelete
I'll tell you what- you can have the seafood, I'll order steak.ReplyDelete
I have been so busy this year in CT that I don't think I have got north of the Mass Pike all summer. That must be a first.ReplyDelete
I'm the only one that like, loves, seafood. My daughter will eat some items, even some I don't or haven't tried like calamari. Watched a show the other night on PBS about bakeries and it featured one called The Standard Baking Co. on Commercial St. I'd move to Portland to just get more round than I am already.ReplyDelete
