A clam shack called The Point will join the new development on Thompson's Point by July thanks to Jason Loring, co-owner of Nosh Kitchen Bar and Slab, Mike Fraser, owner of Bramhall, and Nat Towl, a builder who worked on Slab.
The Press Herald reports that the project will be built from renovated shipping containers and "will have all outdoor seating its first year," with picnic tables for 200-300 guests in a beer garden atmosphere. Loring told the paper The Point will serve "really, really high-quality fresh seafood right from the water," including fried clams, steamers, lobster dinners, and multiple types of lobster rolls. Takeout will also be available.
Loring, never one to stop planning, also let slip that he and Fraser are working on another secret project; in total, he has four places in mind he'd like to add to Portland's dining landscape.
