Out of 19 picks for best summertime food in New England, Boston Globe Magazine selected five (yes, five!) Maine restaurants. In the categories for lobster rolls, seafood fine dining, fried fish sandwich, blueberry pie and ice cream, Maine was either the best in its category or was among some top contenders in New England. But as a state who knows how to cook and eat the summertime classics, is this really all that surprising?
The Clam Shack in Kennebunkport won for its lobster roll, Bagaduce Lunch in Penobscot for its fried haddock sandwiches. The mag noted that Sea Glass at Inn by the Sea has the best seafood fine dining, Waterman's Beach Lobster in South Thomaston has the best blueberry pie, and the Gifford's mini-chain has the best ice cream.
