Portland Area Restaurants of Days Gone By....

What are some of your favorite memories of restaurants that no longer exist? They don't have to be good restaurants, just gone. I have three that remind me of when I was a kid...

1. York's Steakhouse at the mall....the dessert portion of that long buffet counter was the best part (I was about 6);

2. Wassen's Grove (sp?) on Route 100 in Falmouth/Gray - best burgers ever;

3. A place on Congress Street across from Porteous. It became D'Angelos at one point then an Asian takeout place. Could have been a Deering Ice Cream...I remember going there after shopping with my mom. They had multi-colored school-style kids chairs. Loved it!

Anyone else with similar childhood memories (and an amazement about how far Portland has come in the restaurant field)?
