Dress Codes for some restaurants?

Of course you can go anywhere in Maine in shorts but I think at some places(Back Bay Grill) you would look a little foolish. At joe beef in Montreal they draw the line at baseball hats.For me its guys over 40 in tank tops!

Freaking Out about 1st Portland Trip- Great Seafood, Great Beer- Any Advice on this Itinerary Much Appreciated

Portsmouth, Surf is pretty good,on the water. Lovell is quite a haul and I would say your time would be better spent at novare res where you"d have a hard time putting much of a dent in their wonderfull selection of beers,ales, stouts etc.

Portsmouth (NH, USA) wine stores ?

The state liquor store has a complete selecition of wines gin and its cheap with no tax and as a result the selection at private stores is limited.Its at the circle 5 min from downtown Portsmouth Cheers!

Portland - want to try something new

Lola is not anything like Toro. its casual and offers a good variety of meditteranen plates of all sizes.Agree with bobbert that Emilista has great food but I think they are a little full of them selves.You might like P Jaquiline. Casual Bistro food. great steak frites and affordable wine!Have fun..

Nosh vs. Duckfat

Key word "bordering"just didn't feel welcome, waitresses and bar ,like i said I like both places and waiting in line for thirty min. I won't do except for dim sum in Boston.

Nosh vs. Duckfat

A few points. I agree you get more meat at Nosh, and their fries are very good.but duckfat soups are superior, and thier service is friendlier.Been to Nosh three times and would call the service bordering on rude.Definitely not warm and and welcoming.Also duckfat is tiny,nosh is huge in comparison,and to sum up, while duckfat is a bit over-hyped,Portland is lucky to have both.

Lunch in Portland 11.23

Evenentide is an option for oysters and other interesting seafood, but remember this day will be really busy at all the hot spots i.e. Duckfat across the street!

Clams AND rings, NH seacoast??

Agree about the fries but I found the O rings pretty good at CB. And the clams especially the big bellies hard to beat.
