Seafood crowning achievement of this harborside restaurant
Who better to know about seafood than the chef at a restaurant alongside the waterfront? That’s why the menu at BlueFin North Atlantic Seafood restaurant at the Portland Harbor Hotel features the freshest locally caught fish as well as everything else that is Maine at its best: seasonal fruits and vegetables, farm-fresh eggs and artisanal cheeses, artfully presented with plenty of culinary surprises. From house-made granola at breakfast to crab cakes for lunch to evening meals that start with marinated octopus and move on to a “clean shirt lobstah dinnah” (picked claws and split tail), paella or a grilled strip steak, dining at the BlueFin, either in a plush booth or on the lush garden patio, is not to be missed.
