La Valencia on 9.22.13 (because it will change a lot)

With you on all of the above - when Patrick was ousted and down the line to Manny - it might as well be a Residence Inn. But cut the Collins some slack, there was a good reason.

Sometimes change is not for the best. Glad Barron is gone since he did not seem to know when to let food speak for but the management of the Hotel should go back to wherever they came from. Jim Irwin is spinning in his grave.

Maybe he won't be back.

Primo report

I know who you mean having had the same issues with him. I think he's been there too long. Last time we were downstairs we had a waiter named William who was terrific.

Love the food there, but there are sometimes issues with the upstairs staff - like the fellow behind the food bar who takes himself way too seriously.

Midcoast Maine Food

Totally agree about Cafe Miranda - dreadful, overwrought food. Next time try Home Kitchen Cafe also in R'land another good place.

Sad Day for D.C. Pizza -- Edan Macquaid Departs

So where in Maine is he?

The Lost Kitchen in Belfast

An awful lot of baseless speculation here about something that is none of anyone's business.

The Lost Kitchen in Belfast

I hope it's just a bad rumor.I would hate to lose such a wonderful place, in so many ways, from the service to the drinks to the food. It would be sorely missed and a real loss.

3CROW Restaurant & Bar - Rockland, ME

The burger is what I had (came with the fries) and it was all right (unheated bun which wasn't all right), great fries, like I said. I will go again because I know what a good cook Josh has in the kitchen there. I know it will get better and hope it becomes as good as 40P which is a great place to eat and drink.

Sea Bright in Camden, Maine. Or is it Seabright?

Totally agree with the above complaints about sound levels in Brian's restaurants - great food (update at SP perhaps?) but obnoxious sound levels. Seabright has great pizza but what's with the cavelike dark at the back?

3CROW Restaurant & Bar - Rockland, ME

Ate there Thursday night - drinks are terrific, great, but noisy, space that's very well done. Flatware & napkins uncomfortable, cheesy and cheap - like they spent all their money on the space. Food cooked in a downstairs kitchen, hauled upstairs, uncovered, by waitstaff, so not as hot as it should be - nor was it as good as we had hoped since it was kind of Southern (NOLA wannabe) translated to ME ingredients which didn't always work. Definitely go back for the drinks, but not the food - but it should get better after the kinks (a few) are worked out. Have to say, though, the french fries and tobacco onion fries were super.

Comida Latin Kitchen in Camden, ME?

Have had dinner and a lunch there in the last week. Menu is the same for both - items and prices. Food was good but the ventilation in the small kitchen needs an upgrade. Smoke in the dining area gets pretty intense at night. I am sure it will be better in summer when the patio will be available and the side door can be open. Would I go again? Definitely. There's a whole, small menu to eat my way through.

SodaStream vs. Twist & Sparkle

Yeah well, in the West Bank...Israeli made in the disputed territory. As a Jew, this offends me. Why don't they make it in Israel proper? If you need to put bubbles in your water or whatever, give me an ISI product any day
