Thanks for Portland ME ideas - it was perfect!

Just back from the Portland getaway - which was pretty much an eating fest! Decided to try and walk-in to Fore Street, but couldn't deal with the 1.5 hour wait. So we kept our reservation at Street and Co....and glad we did. Great lively ambiance, great service - and the food was delish. We shared manchego con mebrillo (taste of cheese with quince paste) and a spinach salad. I had the "in the pan" scallops with cream and pernod (?). I wish I could finish it now (big portion!). My husband had some type of whole fish which he loved. Bread pudding for dessert.

Brunch at Mim's was also fabulous. Beers at Gritty's before dinner...What more could one ask from a 24 hour no kids getaway?? (Portland Harbor Hotel was loveley and the workout room will hopefully help with the overconsumption) Hopefully we can return soon for more good eats and fun.

Thanks for the great suggestions.
