Back Bay Grill

Reviewed By John M - Scarborough, United States

For the first course we have Pemaquid Mussels with shallots, white wine, leek & chive cream, fine herbs and Maine Crab Cake with smoked paprika aioli, pickled red peppers, arugula. For the main course we both had Lavender Marinated Duck Breast with duck confit, braised radish, roasted cauliflower puree, melted leek. It was all served in a relax manner. The noise level was just enough so that it did not interfere with your conversation.

Small intimate restaurant with outdoor seating for daytime diners. The staff were very nice and we all had fish and everyone was very happy with their choice. If you're staying on the island off season, make sure about the hours because one evening they closed just after 8PM.

Scratch Baking Co.

Reviewed By Downeastme - Downeast Maine

Have only gone here for their bagels so cannot comment on all the other goodies (and there are plenty). I agree with the majority of the reviewers - these bagels are special - and I understand why the constant flow of folks starting at 6am. The sour dough bagel is special - crispy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside make for a tasty morning start - the flavor is special. If you want a large variety to choose from you will be disappointed - don't be, the 'plain' is all you need. I prefer them toasted but untested is pretty darn good. I say go for it and wish you good luck getting out of there with only bagels :>)

Gorgeous Gelato

Portland's only authentic Italian gelato shop! Welcome to paradise !!

Reviewed By ME_Gardener6 - Portland, Maine

We've been going to Gorgeous Gelato since they opened & it is so much better than any other gelato in Portland. It's rich, creamy, and so fresh. There are so many sweet and fruity flavors to choose from. Being lactose intolerant, they always have a few non-dairy options.

David's 388

Reviewed By carolinagirl523

When dinning with friends, we always share bites. So I tasted all four entrees served at our table. My entree was night special filet, mashed potatoes & asparagus & it was superb! My friend had lamb, it too was delicious. From chowders to salad, all was good. Desserts that we enjoyed was bourbon chocolate cake & featured lemon cream brûlée. Our waitress, Erin was a delight!! Not only was she a great serve, she also recommend some great area travel spots.

Emilitsa

Emilitsa is a Greek restaurant located in the arts district of Portland, Maine and boasts a contemporary and casual atmosphere. Emilitsa brings a wide array of Mezethes (small plates), Megala Piata (large plates), and pristinely fresh seafood to the seacoast area. We honor the breadth of traditional cuisine from all regions of Greece. We prepare our Greek dishes with as many local, fresh, organic and natural ingredients as are available to us. We also accommodate those with food allergies.

Reviewed By Jim B - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, United States

Our son's in-laws in Chicago are Greeks by heritage and conviction, so we habe been treeted to their cuisine-- excellent at home and in their favorite restaurants, but mostly traditional and conventional. Emilitsa re-imagines many of those dishes, so they manage to surprise, and to delight in new ways. Service is friendly and professional, and it's a delight to be able converse with friends without cupping your ears or straining to hear. This is one of the favorite restaurants we recommend to friends when they visit Portland.
