    So Mainers, where should I go to eat next week? Looking for restaurant recommendations in the Portland area. We've been up there many times and are pretty familiar with the popular spots. What's new? What's good but not well known? Casual is better since we'll have three kids in tow.

    Thanks!

    I always get a bowl of pho at Saigon every time im back in Portland. Go see salvage bbq, our resident kkfer brainsausage is the head chef there.

    I really like honeypaw(asian fusion) and duck fat(glutenous yumminess) Bintliffs for corned beef hash. Otto for pizza (get the mashed potato one)

    If you or your kids need a haircut, go to momentum barber shop. my best friend is the owner.

    Besides Brainsausage at Salvage, tkern (Travis) is still heading up the kitchen at their sister place Local 188 (I think).

    I am watching this thread, as I am heading to southern Maine soon. I will be stopping by to visit Evan at StrataPortland.

    The children’s museum is awesome.

    Yup, I'm still running Local 188. Come on by.

    My favorite restaurant has been Izakaya minato.
    Black Cow for hamburgers
    Huongs for pho.
    For the obligatory lobster roll, J's oyster.
    Bearded lady's jewel box for cocktails.

    I'll add Solo Italiano, Fore Street and Eventide. All are a bit on the nice but casual side.

    Central Provisions is nice for lunch.

    Plus one on all the other recs above (plus a few new ones mentioned by TK that I'll need to try)...particularly fond of Saigon and overdue for some more of that Salvage BBQ.
