Where to Eat in Portland, Maine Right Now
The gist: Tucked into a pretty storefront in a quiet residential neighborhood, this is the place to get your authentic Jewish bagel sandwich, smoked fish, and other appetizing shop favorites.
The food: Bagels—plain, poppy, sesame, everything and rye, and a fun daily special such as chili-garlic-fennel—are made in house. Choose one for any of the nine sandwiches, build your own sandwich, or take fixings home and lay out an elaborate spread. Smoked fishes and spreads include nova lox, Rose (gravlax-style), pastrami nova, sable, and whitefish salad. You’ll also find traditional egg salad, chopped liver, deli pickles, and a variety of cream cheeses.
The cost: Bagel sandwiches and platters are $6-18 and a fisherman’s Feast for two runs $32. Coffee, water, juice and sodas, $2-3.25. Gift cards and cool branded merch are available, too.
