Our buddy Andrew Knowlton leaves a delicious swansong as he leaves Bon Appetit for other pastures, naming Portland, Maine "Resturant City of the Year" and including Biddeford and Rabelais in his round-up.
"Leave town! Biddeford is the best reason to drive 18 miles south. It's home to one of the country's best cookbook stores, Rabelais (say hello to Don and Sam for me) and upstarts Little Spruce Baking Co. and Elda restaurant. It's also home to the Single. Best. Diner. On. The. Planet. Palace Diner. The flapjacks are towering, the burger is smashed and crunchy, and the tuna salad sandwich is quickly becoming a Maine icon."
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
