5 Places

chadnibal | Jul 11, 202108:19 PM     6

We're in Portland for 5 days including my wife's birthday, don't know the area, but lobster, scallops, magret de canard, turtle soup, foie gras, trout, salmon, and arctic char are some of our favorites. Interested in Isa, Fore Street, Scales, Eventide, and Central Provisions from reading here.

Is elda in Biddeford worth a trip? We like a good tasting menu and the pictures on the foodmap website look interesting, but their website has no recent menus, no chowhound reviews.

What places open now in Portland are better, don't miss, most reliable for a special birthday event? Bonus points for a great view. Thanks!
