We all know that Portland is a city with an exceptional food scene, with so many great restaurants in such a concentrated area. The city is host to many great foodie events throughout the year, but there's one happening next week that is like no other. "Miami Meets Maine," happening next Thursday, September 26th at the Portland Harbor Hotel's Blue Fin North Atlantic Seafood Restaurant, will combine foods from both locations, for one spectacular evening of delicious food.

The idea was "cooked" up by Blue Fin Chef Gil Plaster, and his friend Michael Beltran, whom he met year ago when he worked in Miami. Michael taught Gil all about the Miami food scene, so now Gil thinks it's time for him to teach Michael all about the Portland food scene.
