Lobster is just about as ubiquitous in Maine restaurants as you would expect, showing up on and in everything from toasted rolls and bisques to souffléés and brûlées. To get your lobster fix, skip the fancy trimmings and head for a place such as Phil's Route 27 Lobster Shophome of some of Maine's best lobster rollsor even Portland's DiMillo's, a former ferry that overcomes its tourist trappings with just enough kitschy charm. Once you've satisfied your seafood cravings, or at least taken the edge off, you'll discover that Maine restaurants offer a whole lot more than spiny little sea creatures. Portland's chefs are among the state's best-known celebrities, and demonstrate their kitchen prowess at local favorites such as Fore Street and Duckfat, while Primo in Rockland and Arrows in Ogunquit have become synonymous with the seaside towns they call home. Maine restaurants also rival any other spot in the country for a focus on creative, sustainable cuisine. On a summer evening, there's a good chance that your entire meal was harvested locallyand not just from the sea.
