NYC to Maine Gastro Roadtrip

chdelro | Aug 5, 2009 04:35 AM

It is our first time in Maine. I am planning a roadtrip to Maine this weekend (from Saturday to Monday), hoping to leave NYC by 6am to maximize on all that Maine has to offer. Portland is our base and have made dinner reservations at Caiola's for Saturday and Fore Street for Sunday. Was debating about 555 and Hugo's as well, but hopefully made the right choice in selecting these two restaurants.

The plan is to drive through the coastal towns of Kittery, Ogunquit, and Kennebunks making our way up to the Portland area on Saturday and do the coastal drive to Acadia on Sunday. Any thoughts on what are must have roadside eats for lunch? Essentially looking for lobster shack roadside recommendations for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday for the trip back to NYC. The short list for now include Five Islands Lobster, Seaside, Clam Shack and Red's. Thanks!
