Central Coast Maine Trip and Question

hokiefan | Jul 18, 2007 07:13 AM

We are having a great trip up in Maine this week. Stopped at Street an co in portland on the way up. It was fantastic. Everything about it was great. Four had dinner with appetizers and wine for less than 200 including tip. I can't even come close to that kind of price in CT for that kind of food.

Yesterday we had a fantastic day of eating. We went to Chase's Daily in Belfast for brekfast. I had the French toast on home baked bread and she had the omlet. Both were outstanding. Lunch was at Thai Kitchen in Camden. Very friendly owner and great food. It was slow so she gave us an impromptu cooking tutorial on thai food. How great is that! I wondered why my thai curry never tasted the same as when I eat it out. Francine Bistro for dinner. WoW! Service was awesome. Had the Broccoli soup and the smoked lamb ribs. The lamb ribs were rubbed in a delicious brown sugar based barbeque rub with eastern influences. They were fatty and amazing. I had the hanger steak which had some excellently crispy fries served with herbs de provence. Wife had the pork which was a little bland. Still one of the best dinners we have had overall. This place makes me wonder how I ever got stuck in Hartford. Why can't we have a restraunt like this? I am guessing my trip to Primo will only make it worse.

We are going to Primo in Rockland tonight. Should we try for a reservation at the Edge or go to Francine again on Thursday or Friday?
