Three meals in Portland

Just spent a tasty two days in Portland including the following meals:
Dinner at Street & Co. This was excellent, possibly the best meal of our extended 6 day trip in New England & Canada. We shared two apps: Slow Cooked Squid & Chorizo and Grilled Sardines (I think). Squid were very tender in an excellent sauce, not a huge amount of chorizo but enough to flavor the dish. Sardines were OK but nothing special. For the main dish I had the Scallops in Pernod & Cream, which was excellent - not to rich & creamy, very well seasoned. My DCs had Seafood Stew, Blackened Halibut c,an't remember what else. DC with Blackened Halibut said it was one of the best fish meals she has ever had at a restaurant.

Lunch the next day was at the Bite Into Maine lobster roll truck at the Portland Head Light at Fort Williams Park in South Portland. Six of us all ordered the 'classic' lobster roll, three with chives and three without. The rolls are not cheap, but they are indeed classic - everything about them was done to perfection. The chives were pretty to look at but did not effect the taste.

Dinner the second night was at Susan's Fish-n-Chips. This was pretty disappointing. My fried clams were fresh & plentiful, but the batter was heavy & greasy. We were there early, maybe the oil wasn't hot enough yet? Fish & chips were equally disappointing batter-wise.
