Updates in greater Portland


Finch’s in Falmouth has closed, but it will reopen as Johnny’s Bistro Bar (web site not functioning yet).

Mim’s, Portland, is closed.

Paciarino, the pasta shop and restaurant adjacent to the Portland Harbor Hotel, is open (see my previous post).

Borealis Bakery and Bistro in Portland is open. I’m eager to see what’s cooking here. I’ve been a fan of Borealis since it was Bodacious, and I pop into the Waldoboro bakery frequently for bread, rolls, and their to-go sandwiches. In the kitchen in Portland is Chef Josh DeGroot, most recently of Sweet Leaves Tea Room, in Brunswick. I’d kill for his chocolate goat cheese.
