Toroso

Toroso, Bard’s new Kennebunk restaurant, wears its Spanish inspiration proudly, from the legendary jamón ibérico on the Charcuteria y Queso portion of the menu to the bacalao and fideos — among the entrées.

Joy to the Mouth

Looking for the perfect cocktail to serve your holiday guests? We asked bartenders at two of our favorite watering holes to match the spirit of the season with recipes for quaffs that are warm, bright, and cheery.

We’re not asking you to dine out at every amazing restaurant in Maine. Just these 20. Plus one entire town. Hope you’re hungry.

Kittery

Where-to-Eat Town: Kittery

In 180 paces (we counted), you can traverse the nucleus of Kittery’s snug Foreside district, passing eight restaurants, a whole-animal butcher, an import market of Euro delicacies, a dim craft-cocktail bar, and a coffee shop with the best vibe (and crullers) for 50 miles in any direction.

Dining

Center Lovell Inn

It’s not surprising that Center Lovell Inn, a beautifully restored 1805 Georgian-style farmhouse in rural western Maine, induces a Zen-like serenity in those who visit.
