Portland Pâtisserie - Portland Restaurants - Down East

Portland Pâtisserie

The pastries, quiches, soups, and sandwiches at Portland Pâtisserie and Grand Café, in the Old Port, are well on their way to standing on their own, with authentic French underpinnings and just enough New World innovation to keep things interesting.

Farmer Boys

It’s been seven decades since John Gould and E.B. White published their respective odes to rural living. But the two prolific Maine writers have inherited quite different legacies.

Curationland

With a brand-new format and a muck-boot–sporting curator, the ninth iteration of the Portland Museum of Art Biennial comes into its own.

The Menu

The concept for new Portland eatery The Honey Paw is summed up in just three words: non-denominational noodle bar. It’s a shrine to the slurp-able, twirl-able, soul-soothing dishes you’ll find in every culture’s cuisine, from Japanese ramen to Italian bigoli.
