Plan ahead for Portland's Restaurant Week


Hungry to try something new? Following in the steps of Boston, New York, and other cities around the country, Portland is poised to offer its first RestaurantWeekME March 1-10, 2009.

During the event, participating restaurants will offer three-course menus priced at $20.09, $30.09, or $40.09, plus tax and gratuity; actual rate and menu will vary by restaurant. The idea is to introduce restaurants to new faces (and likely to draw diners during an always-slow season).

The preliminary list of participating restaurants reads like a who’s who of Greater Portland’s foodie faves: Fore Street, Back Bay Grill, Hugo’s, Eve’s, The Front Room, Vignola, The Grill Room, Bar Lola, Bull Feeney’s, Inn on Peak’s Island, Bresca, and Cinque Terre.

Other culinary events planned include tastings, tours, book signings, competitions, cooking demos ,and guest chefs.
