The Honey Paw
Where to Eat in Portland, Maine Right Now
The gist: The team behind Eventide and Hugo’s extended their Middle Street sparkle when they opened Honey Paw in 2015.
The food: Slather sweet chili butter over warm fried bread and snack on Napa cabbage kimchi while you wait for larger dishes like lobster wontons in miso dashi; tingly biang biang noodles with braised beef; and smoked lamb khao soi—a brothy coconut curry accented with mustard greens, coconut, and lime. The honey soft serve with chocolate shell and honeycomb provides a sweet note to end on.
The cost: Starters and entrees range $5-22, most cocktails are $15, and beer and wine sold in four-packs and by the bottle go for $14-30.
How to order: Order takeout at The Honey Paw, and delivery from Uber Eats or 2Dinein.
