Planning a Rushed Eating Tour of Portland!

KANGAGIRL | Jun 15, 2011 07:25 PM


My girlfriend and i have decided to quickly plan a 4 day trip to Portland Maine.

We are two Australians living in Montreal and this will be our first time to Maine!

When traveling we like to eat special and i was hoping someone could give me a thumbs up or down or even offer a bit of advice on our eating plan:

Day 1 - Lunch - Duckfat. I read this everywhere and after a long drive i will be hungry, steering clear of any poutine though.

Day 1 - Dinner - Bresca. Do we need to dress up? Is this as good as hear? Or is there a bit of hype?

Day 2 - Lunch - open to suggestions maybe some seafood (good quality low price - if possible).

Day 2 - Dinner - Fore Street. I don't have a reservation (arrgghh) but i read i could put my name on the door at around 5:30. If things go bad does anyone have a suggestion to replace.

Day 3 - Lunch - We plan to head up to Camden for a night so we will be close to our dinner plans. Can someone suggest a nice but not to pricey place for lunch. Either on the drive up from Portland or around the area.

Day 3 - Dinner - Primo - Heard good things and a splattering of scary 'they lost it' kind of things. I'm nervous! Should i go? I have a booking, please tell me its still great.

Day 4 - Maybe driving up to Acadia National Park. Don't know if there is anywhere around the park. Maybe a cute town with something simple for lunch. Please help.

Day 4 - Dinner - Crap drive thru food as i drive the 7 hours back to Montreal.

What do you think? I really will appreciate any little suggestion and or comment.

Thanks for reading
