New "health-bar-meets-hip-lounge" Liquid M2 opened over the weekend on Fore Street. The juice cafe and cocktail bar from the team behind Mojo Health Bar also offers lunch, dinner, and brunch and will be open "winter hours" starting at 10 a.m. Monday through Saturday until May, when it will begin serving seven days a week.
Look for wraps, sandwiches, soups, and salads at lunchtime. For dinner, appetizers like coconut shrimp and wild mushroom polenta are also available, as well as such entrees as sous vide halibut and spiced soba noodles with tofu. A variety of smoothies, raw juices, and "health and energy shots" can be ordered, and the cocktail menu, billed as "the first farm-to-bar menu in Portland, Maine," offers cold-pressed juices mixed with liquors.
465 Fore Street, Portland; (207) 541-9033. Open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
