Dining Guide: 5 Restaurants Doing Something Different With Maine Lobster

One of the restaurant’s most popular appetizers is the lobster tartine, a highly elevated version of the shrimp toast you find in Chinese restaurants. A thin slice of bread is spread with lobster and scallop mousse, deep fried, and topped with more lobster, sliced of radish, celery leaves and hijiki. This dish is indicative of the menu here, which is all over the culinary map, with Asian and Mediterranean flavors combined in novel ways. The third restaurant from the owners of Eventide Oyster Co. and Hugo’s is one of the hottest spots in Portland.
