Fore Street

The restaurant that first put Portland on the culinary map still remains one of the most popular dining destinations in the state.  Chef and co-owner Sam Hayward goes to great lengths to secure the best ingredients on a daily basis, with professional and hospitable crews in the kitchen and the front of the house. Simple but beautifully cooked food is prepared in an entirely open kitchen featuring an impressive wood-fired oven, a well-seasoned turnspit, and a wine list driven by food pairings. If you can’t get a reservation, try the convivial bar.
