Put those shorts and flip-flops away. Fall is here. That means those Sundays that were spent at the beach are now for watching football and crushing wings and beer. While the New England Patriots dominate the local fanscape, it turns out that there are a wide array of pigskin allegiances among Maine chefs. For recommendations on where to go and what to order, Eater Maine consulted a panel of football-crazed chefs and compiled their choices into a handy map. Here's who weighed in:
Bill Leavy of Small Axe Truck is a New York Giants fan.
Karl Deuben of Small Axe Truck is a Denver Broncos fan.
Nick Krunkkala of Oscar's New American is a Minnesota Vikings fan: "I haven't had all that much to be excited about with following them for pretty much my entire life," he says.
Andrew Taylor of Hugo's and Eventide Oyster Co. is "a rabid Patriots fan as my father actually had season tickets as I was growing up," he says.
Briana Warner of Maine Pie Line is also a New England Patriots: "We are a football family, so fall is always welcomed in our house," she says.
Damian Sansonetti of Piccolo and Blue Rooster Food Co. is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan: "Born and raised in Pittsburgh -- black 'n yellow!" he says.
Brendan Levin of The Wayfarer is a Texas native and a Dallas Cowboys fan.
