Had a great dinner on Tuesday Night a Finches in Portland,ME. I haven't been there in a while but was invited by the Chef Pat Alden to come in for dinner. I thought it would be laid on heavy because of the invite but I was wrong. I great night of food and wine. Jonny, the owner, was very witty and comforting. You can tell he has great pride in his place. It nice to see a owner present and talking to the guest. He actually recommend a wine, Primus 2005 carm,merlot,cab blend, not on the list. It was a $32. Not trying to push some $70 - $100 bottle. The wine was great.

The food was solid the whole way through. While not re-inventing the wheel or pushing the boundaries it was nice to eat great food in a full restaurant. We had a potato-parsnip soup the was amazing. Not a puree but nice broth, sweating with a touch of dark maple syrup, nice cube vegetables and perfectly seasons. I was surprised how well the food was seasoned even though they has salt and pepper on the table.

I know this board talks a lot about the same 8 restaurants. But if you want a change and a nice night out, I highly recommend Finches
