The Maine Dish
Shepherd’s Pie at Brian Boru, Portland, ME
What does a girl do after a ten hour day spent consulting in a 10,000 sq. ft. university dining facility kitchen? She eats something containing mashed potatoes (are we starting to see a theme here with this County girl and her potatoes?). And my favorite vehicle for spud comfort is Brian Boru’s Shepherd’s Pie, $12 of post-work bliss. Straight up ground beef, carrots, onions, and rich Guinness gravy serves as a base for a raft of the most flawlessly smooth potatoes I’ve found. It’s easily enough for two people, but I’ll stab you with my fork if you come near mine.
