We're traveling from NYC to Portland tomorrow.
So far we're planning on dinner at Fore St (fri night), dinner at Five Fifty-Five (sat night), probably a lunch at Duck Fat and some breakfast/baked goods from Standard Baking Co.
I'm still torn about Becky's Diner. Some hounds seem to think it's great while others think it's nothing more than a tourist trap. Is there anyplace else for a great breakfast? Not looking for a buffet or anything like that. Just good comfort food to get us going in the morning.
And of course, like every other tourist, we're looking for the best lobster roll. I'm thinking about stopping at The Lobster Shack at Two Lights because the view looks amazing. But is the food any good? Or is just a touristy stop?
New England's Favorite Seafood Shacks by Elizabeth Bougerol claims that Red's Eats is the most famous. But is it worth the extra drive from Portland?
BTW, my BF cooks professionally and we're especially interested in places that use a lot of local/seasonal ingredients. Or ones that could be considered artisinal. A local cheese company recommendation would be fantastic.
