Flatbread, Portland

After much debate where to get lunch of the many great restaurants in Portland, friends suggested Flatbread. They have been to other locations in Burlington, Vermont and also located in Edgartown, MA the restaurant is known for a mindful, organic food philosophy. The restaurant is right by the water and boats.

We had a pitcher of sangria, which was light and refreshing. We went through it quickly amongst 4 people.

Mesclun and organic sweet leaf lettuces tossed with celery and carrots, toasted sesame seeds, arame seaweed and berry vinaigrette with Vermont goat cheese for $7.50.

Homemade nitrate-free maple-fennel sausage, sulfate-free sun dried tomatoes, caramelized onions, mushrooms, whole milk mozzarella and Parmesan cheese baked on bread  dough with garlic oil and herbs (Large $18.75).

I was slightly disappointed that the sausage pizza did not have red sauce, but it was very healthy tasting and the sausage has less sodium.

My friend ordered her own pepperoni pizza, however after all our food arrived, still no pepperoni pizza. We all started eating with our friend’s insistence, but poor thing didn’t have her meal. We weren’t sure what happened, since we all heard her order, but the waitress rectified the situation professionally, getting the pizza out as quick as possible and did not charge her for her meal.

Homemade nitrate-free pepperoni,  tomato sauce, whole milk mozzarella and imported Parmesan cheese baked on bread dough with garlic oil and herbs.  I thought the pepperoni and red sauces was amazing. I would order this myself next time.
