If you care about eating well, Portland, Maine should be on your wish list. There is something very exciting going on with the local food scene. It won't take you long to walk from one end of the town to the other, but you may want to add extra days to your itinerary just for meals. Factor in the local bounty of produce and seafood, add talented well-trained chefs who own their own restaurants, and you've got a true recipe for success. Many of the chefs are James Beard Award winners and nominees, but don't book your reservations based just on those accolades or you'll miss out... there are plenty of restaurants here serving some of the best food in the country.
