Fore Street
Acclaimed farm-to-table restaurant
New American · $$$$
The scent of roasting meat, fish and game greets diners at this venerable Old Port American celebrated for its refined, seasonal farm-to-table dinners. Centered around an open wood-fire grill, oven and spit, the setting has a rustic warehouse feel, in keeping with the building's origins as a ship's armory. P.S. Reservations are advised, especially in summer, but there are a few walk-in tables.

This was the capstone to a great trip and great meal. Me and my girlfriend are not foodies, but we do like exploring new places to eat. Dives to fine dining, and everything in between. When we realized that our plans had changed slightly, I looked for someplace special to end our trip. Without a doubt, Fore Street was at the top of everyone's lists, and it does not disappoint. We started with the sampler, which was great for my girlfriend because she is not a seafood person, but it gave her the ability to try new things that she normally would not have considered. The main course was excellent as well. Everything down to the tinniest of details was considered and only added to the course. I would tell you what we got, but the menu changes daily. We finished everything off with a beautiful and savory desert. I feel glutinous but satisfied in every conceivable way. This meal was nowhere near the highlight of the trip, but it accentuated what Portland has to offer. The next time were back in town, we know Fore Street will be one of our stops.

The warmth you feel as you walk in, from both the wood burning ovens and the staff, are an excellent start. They take walk-ins, and we ended up having our meal at the bar. The food was great. Try the mussels! And the bread was the best I've ever had in the United States. The vegetarian pasta dish was out of this world. Good beer and wine list too!

So good. So good. So good!!! One of the best dinning experience in the US. Everything tasted absolutely amazing! Service is flawless. Great cocktails while waiting for a table. Even their bread with butter was fantastic. Dreaming about going there again.
