36 Hours in Portland, Me.

By Suzanne MacNeille

There’s more to this maritime city than great food: gracious parks, Victorian architecture and a thriving arts scene.

ASIAN LUNCH, MAINE STYLE

The seating is communal, the dishes are mismatched and the menu is irresistible at Honey Paw, from the team behind Eventide Oyster Co. and Hugo’s. Honey Paw’s East-meets-New England approach is evident in recent dishes, including smoked lamb khao soi, with house-made noodles, fermented mustard greens, lime and Burmese coconut curry, and lobsterwon tons with confit mushrooms (lunch, about $40).
