Boston has one big, seafood-fueled crush on Portland, Maine’s culinary scene. Exhibit A: A few months back, a handful of acclaimed Boston chefs individually >told Boston.com that Portland is one of their favorite New England food cities.
As it turns out, the Boston-Portland love fest is reciprocal, said Andrew Taylor, chef and co-owner, along with Mike Wiley, of Portland’s famous >Eventide Oyster Co. The duo >won the 2017 James Beard Award for Best Chef — Northeast after being nominated in 2016 for the same award, along with Best New Restaurant for the >Honey Paw, another of their Portland restaurants.
“The population of Boston has been some of our biggest supporters up there in Maine for the past five years,” Taylor said. “We’ve had many, many people say, ‘When are you going to open a restaurant in Boston?’ We’re happy to oblige them.”Advertisement
