A Portland Foodie Fantasy: Spirit Quest [PHOTOS]

Some of Portland’s best restaurants competed in the Maine Restaurant Week event.

Late last week, I was invited to participate in Maine Restaurant Week’s Spirit Quest – a pub crawl of sorts, with some really fancy cocktails and appetizers.

There were 17 locations through Downtown Portland and the Old Port. It was my mission to make it to all 17 stops within three hours. And…mission accomplished. All of the walking involved made me feel a little better about the fact that I ate and drank so much!!

Timber Steakhouse was both the professionally judged first place selection, as well as the People’s Choice.

My personal favorite was TIQA, and their Cyprus Corn Dog with a Limonana frozen cocktail. It reminded me of summer…which I am longing for these days!!

 

I was able to snap a picture of all 17 pairings…check them out below!
