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.

This bakery is simply awesome! Went on Easter morning and it was running as efficiently as could be even with the lines of people and special orders. The assortment of baked goods to chose from is fantastic. Deliciousness!

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.

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.

Such a delight to have brunch here on a cold winter's day. Trees outside the heated porch area were beautiful and a flock of wild turkeys wandered around under the feeder! Omelets and burritos all great. The staff is always so friendly, too. A real winner

Kettle Cove Take-Out & Dairy

Reviewed By moxie88 - Falmouth, Maine

After spending the day at Crescent Beach, my wife and I were looking forward to some ice cream. We both ordered smalls which had two small scoops. We asked if we could get two flavors since there were many flavors we thought we wanted to try but the server curtly said that is not allowed. You need to get a large for two flavors she stated...this despite us being the only people in line. Since we were going to be eating dinner soon we decided against larges. My wife got grapenut which was very good but the scoops were curled so they were hollow (see picture). Probably about a third of each scoop was air! I got Needham ice cream. A nice coconut base but nearly NO chocolate chips (see other picture). Overall a pretty big disappointment. Next time we'll know better and continue on to Willard Scoops.

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.
