I love Portland, Maine and going during off-season when the cruise ships are not in and out of the port. What is even better is Portland’s close proximity to Boston and that the Downeaster train ride is only about 2.5 hours.
Portland is a lovely seaside community and haven for localvores and folks who appreciate locally sourced food, vegetarian fare and seafood. Although I have yet to try Miyake, opened in 2007 by a a chef from northern Japan who trained in New York, has received the incredible buzz of serving some of the most creative hyrbrid sushi.
We attempted to have a fresh, Italian lunch at Cinque Terre, however it was closed for renovations.
