Where to eat during Maine Restaurant Week

Written by: Leslie Bridgers

It’s overwhelming enough to try to pick a place to eat in Portland on a normal night, but during Maine Restaurant Week – starting Friday and running through March 12 – the pressure to make the right choice about where to spend your money is even higher. Sure, your choices are narrowed to the mere 70-plus participating restaurants in the state, and you do have nearly two weeks of dinners, and some lunches, to try as many as possible. But assuming you haven’t suddenly come into an inheritance, we are here to help you home in on the right reservation for you. With some guidance from Restaurant Week co-founder Gillian Britt, we’ve come up with the best options for different dining scenarios.

For more information about participating restaurants and their menus, see the 2019 Maine Restaurant Week Diners’ Guide.
