Mid-coast Maine (Camden)

Hi all. I was in Camden a couple of weeks ago. I was disappointed to miss Long Grain---they are/were on a winter break. But, I wanted to report on and recommend a place that had just opened right near Long Grain, Comida. We had caipirinhas (very good, fresh); a starter of corn cakes with Maine shrimp in a tasty sauce (my favorite dish of the meal); chicken mole with rice, beans, and some salad greens; chile rellenos; and a cubano sandwich (special of the day that day). I liked everything I tried, and I *really* liked the corncake appetizer and the caipirinhas. The service was attentive and friendly, and the space is friendly too. I recommend it and look forward to another visit.

One note about the corncakes---I might use a different label for them. To me they were more like fabulous slices of baked or pan seared polenta. Anyway, a hit for me, by whatever name. Oh, the sauce...

something like Hattie's?

Thanks everyone---unfortunately my plans changed and I ended up having an airport sandwich for dinner. But, that said, I'm glad to hear from you all and glad for the research. I'll head to either Mesa or Hattie's (maybe only if I'm with someone I don't need to talk with? :) ) next time I'm in town.

Thanks---southern-style was what I was looking for. I like your word choice of "elevated"---that's it exactly. I like the looks of Lonesome Dove but unfortunately won't be able to make it out to Ft. Worth; I'm staying around Love Airport.

When I found out Hattie's wasn't open I had my eye on Mesa, but it looks like they aren't open for dinner tomorrow either.

Although it's not what I had in mind originally, Smoke looks friendly and seems well-liked by many folks on the board. Thank you, PeterQ, for the Sissy's suggestion.

Dear hounds,

I have one night, tomorrow, for dinner in Dallas. I've been researching your posts and was super excited about Hattie's---unfortunately when I called to make a reservation they let me know they'll be closed for dinner tomorrow, 11/27, for a repair.

I'd love some recommendations for a Hattie's-like place---similar kind of food, and not loud. I have a car.

Thanks in advance for your advice,
