Portland, ME: Veggie options done right 

We’re loving Portland, Maine. It makes the list of places I’d like to live (summer home)–it has ocean (beautiful views from our house), is an interesting, eclectic small city, and has great food.

  • Vinland a locavore, small plates restaurant–food is 100% from nearby areas. No olives so ghee it is. no wheat–it doesn’t grow around here, but oats do and their oat parsnip bread and oat polenta are tasty. Great slow cooked sunchokes and mushrooms. Tasty chilled turnip soup. 

  

  • Sur Lie: a tapas style restaurant with some delicious veggie options. With a former DC based chef and cocktail program manager. For $15–mushroom soup; A great ginger-peanut cabbage slaw; Crispy egg with baby carrots and the creamiest ricotta. Extra: Brussels sprouts in a special barbecue sauce and oyster mushrooms with shaved jalapeño 

  

  • Fizz House: cool soda fountain/cocktail bar (ok so not food, but…still good.) try the ginger blood orange soda

    A lifelong vegetarian. A foodie. Can there be such a thing? Some restauranteurs don't seem to think so...but many of my veggie friends and family have a little something or two to teach them.
