  1. bloody hell, john. this must have been your utopia.
  2. simply brilliant and envy worthy... First foie gras and now venison... God help the next animal on the Death List.
  3. congrats to bresca!! Boston Globe - "A Chef's Vision Become's a Tiny Treasure of a Restaurant" By Jonathan Levitt, Globe Correspondent | August 15, 2007 Bresca, 11 Middle St., Portland, Maine, 207-772-1004
  4. K.Hortons sells some wonderful raw goat cheeses, cryosealed, and priced around $4...perfectly sized to throw in your bag to snack on. you could get bread @ big sky.... drinks @ the beverage shop... they have some very nice import brews.
  5. i believe that there is also a small garage slightly behind it... and a few public lots on free street..
  6. big sky was the place right by the entrance if you came in closer to congress street.. if you came in off cumberland, then hortons was closer...
  7. ...not because I'm "as French as the Durkee Onions on green bean casserole"...but that's a different story)...mmmmm......green bean casserole." HA!
  8. honey's place has been out of business since 4/30..
  9. i believe it's right next to the usm dorm on congress street...
  10. ate there a few months back and had a great meal..
  11. If you do a search, you may be able to find the review from mainetoday.com and thephoenix.com.
  12. Best to make the reservations as soon as you've decided about it, Halcyon.. I know it fills up on weekends. Phenom, there is a place up on Munjoy Hill called Cafe Lola, they have tapas and the owners/staff have worked @ Street and Co./Fore Str. and it comes highly recommended. It's located @ 100 Congress St. and I would definately make reservations as it's a smaller venue and is very popular on the weekend.
  13. I would put Cinque Terre up there, also, halcyon... www.cinqueterreonline.com
  14. went down rt. 1 yesterday and had some nice full bellied clams @ the cape nedick lobster pound. probably some of the best I've had in the area.
  15. Yosaku is wonderful and johnnyd is the local knowledge guy, so you can't go wrong
  16. and adding to the list of asian restaurants in town, there's a new Thai place next to Bibbo's on Forest ave. Have yet to try it, but am always fond of more asian eateries..
  17. slow roasted calamari (my personal favorite, I stole Jon's tentacles) ← Dirty!! any discussion on average prices?
  18. yes, i believe they closed their doors on 4/30..
  19. more details, please, esme!!!
  20. Jack, was thinking just the other day about getting together with you guys as it sounds like you had a great time for drinks @ Oolong. If my gf and I owned a house, I'd more than love to host a get together, but we're apartment dwellers However, if the idea is still tossed around, I'd love to help in any way. As far as clamming, that's also something fun I've wanted to do, though I hear it is quite backbreaking.. but, still, seems like something you should do at least once while living in maine.
  21. it's way too early to be reading this thread... could someone bring over a side towel to help with the drool?
  22. Maple? I've been kind of out of the loop, but is this a new venue?
  23. Oh, this is such a dangerous topic.. --The Oysters @ King of the Roll--Mr. John Wayne has made me a fan.. --The Scallops in Pernod and Lobster Bread Pudding @ Street and Co. --The Fries from Duckfat --The chocolate pudding @ Caiola's --The sausage and biscuits @ the Front Room --The Lobster and Filet in Sherry Cream sauce @ Fransisco's(it was on their v-day menu) --The White Moca @ Yongo's(RIP) --damn near anything from Henry the VIII's when I'm feeling very carnivorous...
  24. actually, looks like after 2 weeks of being closed, it's back open.
