Hi, I driving up to Bar Harbor in a month for a long weekend. I live right next door to Essex, MA and have a weekend gig as a lobster-woman, so I have my fill of clam shacks and lobsters.
Are there any cool, funky eateries from Portland north? We just need a pit-stop on our way to Bar Harbor. A good example is that there is Dos Amigos in Portsmouth (http://www.seacoastnh.com/pennygourme...), or a fun little brew pub that the locals love. Definitely someplace that would wine a penny gourmet award!
