Take Out Place in Portland, ME?

relativeways1 | Jun 10, 2008 09:40 PM

Hey all

So I have a plan for my boyfriend's birthday coming up in August. I'd like to take him out for a drink at the Top of the east in the eastland hotel (never been, only read about it, any thoughts? If there is another nice place with a good view to grab a drink, let me know too.)

Then I want to go to a place that we could get yummy take out. Or at least food I can order ahead and pick up. He's not a big fan of seafood (I know) aside from salmon, which he loves. I wouldn't mind also just grabbing a bunch of sandwiches, appetizers or pastas. Would like to spend about 30$ (or less, preferably, poor college kids :( ).

Then I'm going to take him and the food to the eastern promenade (I think that's what it's called? Been there once with him...nice walk) and have our dinner there and give him his favourite new zealand beer that we can't seem to find in the states.

Any thoughts? Need help on the take out restaurant suggestions! Whole foods would be easy..but I really don't want to go there.
