1 week ago Wednesday, I had the opportunity to dine with friends at Fore Street in Portland.
Before I get technical, I must stress that the service was brilliant, and the wine, a Cabernet Franc I think from Ahlgren Vinyards, delicious.. Our waiter, Lucian (sp?) was a true professional.
I can only speak for myself, and the others in our party of 8 may have had a nice meal, but I was disappointed.
My appetizer of Scallops and Butter Clams was extremely salty.
The wood-roasted "Free-range" chicken was raw and cold on the inside. I would have sent it back, but by then, I had driven 7 hours, and was dead tired.
Maybe I should have said something, but sleep was the only thing on my mind.
This past wednesday I dined at the other "STREET" restaurant: American Pie. Now this is more like it.
A well run place with incredible Brick, wood fired Pizza. After a week on a remote island off the coast of Downeast Maine, Pizza was perfect... And the service couldn't be nicer.
