Froderick, I was tempted to order that, but the idea of duck fat + duck gravy was just a tad too much!

skibumette, you're welcome, and have a good time in Portland!

Great report, yk - I have been wanting to get to that part of the country for a few years, and never have gotten around to it. I hope to be able to use some of your info soon!

YK: great report with lots of good info. We've been to Portland a couple of times but you've given us leads on some new places to check out that we hadn't known about. I especially like the mail boat idea.
Re: lobster rolls -- there's a very cute diner in Potter Place, NH (a village of Andover NH) called the Junction, located at the junction of Routes 11 and 4A that has really good lobster rolls at a great price. You have to go early, esp on the weekend, because they're not open late in the afternoons.

I second Duck Fat. We were there for lunch last week, and it is everything it (and others) claim it to be. And the Portland art museum is a gem.
