In addition to "Where should we eat in Portland?" the second-most-asked question we hear is " Whatshould we eat in Portland?" Tourists get the easy answers - a classic steamed lobster dinner and freshly shucked local oysters – but beyond those, the decision gets more complicated. Adding to the conundrum: because so many of Portland's best restaurants change their menus to match what's freshest and in season at the moment, delicious choices come and go. But we gave it a shot to come up with this list of the Port City's most iconic, must-try-before-you-die dishes - or if you're a visitor, at least before you go home. Sure, you’ll find some lobster, but why shouldn’t Portland chefs make good use of our famous crustacean? Did we leave out your favorite(s)? Save your shouting for the comments, please.
