This is the original location and conveniently located about a 5-minute walk from the house. The donuts here were featured in the NY Times 36 hours in Portland, and the hype is real. Get an Allen's Coffee Brandy donut and you'll check two Maine Stop boxes at once. Go early because there will be a guaranteed line out the door. Donuts are sold until they're gone.

A recent James Beard finalist for best new restaurant in the nation. Worth every penny. Seating is available on a walk-in basis only. I would recommend going in to put your name on the list, and pop downstairs for a cocktail while you wait for your table to be ready. They'll call you when your table is ready. Seriously you can't lose here.

They have a Japanese garden patio that is amazing on a nice day. Consider yourself lucky if you get to meet the friendly proprietor, Tak, or if you happen to dine here during the Blue Fin Festival. Best sushi in town, hands down. (Trust me we've tried them all)

Fantastic BBQ. Order at the counter and they will bring it over to you on a tray. Order a beer while you wait, they have a great diverse tap list that I would consider modest at 30 or so taps. Get the ribs before they sell out and get the brisket sandwich if they have. Hush puppies on the side.

Drinks & Nightlife
The GLB is an icon of the craft beer movement in Portland and New England. They have too many beers on tap to count, most of them are local and most of them are delicious. Go on Monday or Tuesday night for "Talls for Smalls Night" where you get a big ol' glass for the price of a pint. The dirty wings here are insanely good and you won't regret trying a half order.

Grab a drink here before the show at Thompson's Point. Their beer has been raved about since they started pouring. The space is awesome and the beer is refreshing as all getout. The chicken shack next door has a secret window that they pass your meal through so your beer doesn't get warm while you wait. Recommended Beers: The Substance: The brew that started it all. Swish: Double IPA that will have you calling an Uber.

Destination. This is the brewery that took the craft beer game in Maine and New England to the next level. They produce the finest example of a Belgian White, that even outshines the Belgians. Their sour beers are incredible and are worth buying to bring home as souvenirs. Recommended Beers: White Interlude Any of their Coolship series Resurgam.

Foulmouthed's brewpub is a quick trip across the Casco Bay Bridge and worth the drive. They are always coming up with unique styles and keep the taplist fresh at all times. Their food is UNREAL. Highly recommend the pulled pork nachos, and a house made corndog. Grab a pint to wash it down. Recommended Beers: Brat Nightvillian Uzu Gose Maggy Botanical Brett (ask for it by name) They also make a sneaky good margarita.
