Maine Diner

The Maine Diner doesn't seem to get a lot of respect, so I felt obligated to report that I had the best seafood chowder I've ever had there a couple of weeks ago. A lot of chowders in Maine have great seafood in them, but the broth is too often basically just heavy cream without much flavor other than richness. I actually liked the broth in the Maine Diner's chowder as much as the chunks of seafood - it was rich, but also positively redolent of lobster and clams. And it was chock full of seafood chunks - no potato filler here. Really excellent. The cod cakes and lobster pie were also very tasty, but the chowder was what I'd come back for.
