Driving from Port Clyde to Portland, ME + Sunday in Portland - where do we eat?

ANin | Jul 27, 2012 11:00 AM

Driving from Port Clyde to Portland at the tail end of a wedding trip. It's the closest thing we have to a vacation during this wedding-packed season, so we'd like to at least have a good time!

About us: young couple from NYC. We'll eat absolutely anything. Obviously we have access to a lot in NY, so we'd most like to have some really great seafood while we're in ME. Price range wide open, but we're definitely not averse to dive-ier places and considering how much we're shelling out on the aforementioned weddings, cheaper options will definitely be considered!

- Any recommendations for lunch anywhere at all en route from Port Clyde to Portland? It might be fun to stop somewhere along the way and break up the drive.

- Being in ME on a Sunday will definitely limit our options - I don't know if it being labor day weekend will change that. Fisherman's Grill was high on the list but it looks like they close at 6pm on Sunday which would be a VERY early dinner for us. Street & Co sounds interesting but is definitely pricey for what would be a casual dinner and 555 and Fore both seem really close to a lot of what's available in NYC. Any recommendations for an option to match Fisherman's grill? Great fresh seafood for a fun Portland dinner?

- We're thinking Duckfat for lunch on Monday before heading out to the airport. The boyfriend doesn't wake up early enough to make a thing out of breakfast, so we'll just get something small near our B&B.

- Cocktails / Music on a Sunday night? Gingo Blue was mentioned in an earlier post and sounded right up our alley with blues & cocktails but (of course) no live music listed on Sundays. I'm thinking that might be the case everywhere... but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Thank you all!
