Everything about Fore Street was spectacular. This could be a fancy white tablecloth kind of spot but instead they’ve created a venue for exceptional food in a relaxed environment. This is not to say it’s inexpensive, it’s not, but hands down I would suggest anyone traveling to Portland should plan on splurging on a meal here. This will be my first stop on my return to Portland, Maine.
They do accept walk-ins though I’d make a reservation to be assured seating. Ask to sit in the main dining room so you can watch the cooks at work in the open kitchen and get the bread – lots of it. They own Standard Baking which is right downstairs from the restaurant. Holy cow the sourdough! If you want an exceptional dining experience put this on your list of must-gos.
