The Room With An Italian Flair

corner room

If you love Portland, then you know that Harding Lee Smith’s The Rooms are an integral part of the food scene here. It’s undoubtedly impressive that they are all so incredibly successful, yet they are all completely different. With only an open kitchen concept and names to link them, each Room is completely unique.

A Sweet Treat: Foley’s Cakes

If you pay any attention to this blog, or you know me personally, you have to know that one of my favorite phrases is that dessert is the best meal of the day. And there’s really no better bakery that fulfills this to me than Foley’s Cakes in Monument Square. I can always get my […]

The Under $10 Lunch Club

under 10 lunch

Lunch in Portland can sometimes be a pretty pricey affair. And sometimes, you either don’t have a lot of money or a lot of time. Enter these restaurants, where you get the most bang for your buck and leave feeling full and satisfied! Slab: Takeout means you can get a pound of pizza for about […]

The Blue Spoon: Brunch Is Beautiful

Open Face Sandwich

Although all food is great, one of my favorite things on the planet…is brunch. A good brunch can be hard to find and it may  require some trial and error. Enter Saturday and Sunday mornings. They are the perfect time for brunch, especially because sleeping in is a prerequisite that you cannot violate! And of […]

I know I’m not breaking any new ground here, but Silly’s in Portland is just too good not to talk about. As always, I will never be a fan of restaurants that are chains, and Silly’s seems to have that essential charm that’s necessary to be a restaurant that sticks around. As much as I […]

The Quest for Chicken and Waffles: A Prelude

I love the Portland food scene. All in all, there’s almost everything you could want here. There’s just one thing that is proving a challenge: finding Chicken and Waffles. Granted, this isn’t exactly an East Coast or New England dish, but man is it amazing! I love the salty flavor of the chicken combined with […]

Dessert is the best meal of the day to me, and The Bar of Chocolate in the Old Port deserves some recognition. As a chocoholic, I’ve never found a place that quenches my endless thirst for chocolate and dessert quite like they do. From alcoholic beverages to the perfect dessert to end your night, The […]

Empire Reopens!

Lobster Dumplings

So, many Portlander’s may not know, but Empire has went back to its original roots: a Chinese restaurant. It was the first Chinese restaurant to ever open in Portland back in 1916. However, it’s been known as the Empire Dine and Dance for a while now, serving as a venue for music and performances. And […]

Salvage Barbecue

I am so full beyond belief with Barbecue as I write this. I went to Salvage for dinner Thursday night, and I am highly impressed. I’ve always been a Barbecue fan, and pulled pork is my favorite. It was disappointing when I found out that Barbecue isn’t a top priority in Portland, but not anymore! […]

Vignola Cinque Terre

When you have a special occasion, like a birthday to celebrate, every foodie hopes that their significant other (or friends!) will take them somewhere out of the ordinary, instead creating an evening that they are sure never to forget. I got my wish a few weeks ago for my 22nd birthday, when I was surprised […]
