If you were hungry Maine was the place to be this week. We kicked off Maine Restaurant Week by attending the Breakfast Cook Off at Sea Dog Brewery and what a great kickoff it was. The tastings were all amazing but the winner was The Good Table’s - Brulee French Toast, this was their 2nd win 2 years in a row! Our next stop for dinner that night was Portland, Five Fifty-Five - delish! To work up our appetite we took part in Art Walk which takes place the first Friday of every month. Although it was a little cold the attendance was strong we can’t go back. Saturday we back to Portland, our destination was Grace. Grace was formerly a Methodist Church so you have to go even if it’s just to see the transformation but highly recommend staying for dinner, what a great spot for cocktails! For our next tasting we decided to stay in Kennebunk and try Stripers – the lobster mac n cheese was exactly what I need for a cold winter’s night;can’t wait to go back and enjoy the view when the weather gets warm. I had to try the lobster pot pie at Academe Brasserie which I had seen on The Food Network as one the best things I ever ate – well all I can say it wasn’t a disappointment! A few more days to go but better find a gym quick! Hope you can join us next year – make sure to bring your appetite.
