My last Travel Destination Guide shared with you what to see and where to go during your vacation or getaway in Maine. This Travel Destination Guide I am sharing the Best Food and Best Drinks that Maine has to offer.
B STANDS FOR BEST FOOD
Ohhhhh, Maine! The selection of fresh produce and fresh seafood is truly amazing. The choices were tough to limit but I am sharing my favorites.
Krista’s Restaurant is located at 2 Main Street, Cornish, Maine. Visit their website at http://www.kristasrestaurant.com for more selections and updates.
- Nutella Stuffed French Toast – filled with nutella and sliced bananas, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with powdered sugar.
- Egg Scramble – veggies and 3 eggs scrambled, served with toast and your choice of cheddar, swiss, american, feta or herbed cream cheese.

Next place for foodie lovers is Royal River Grill House located at 106 Lafayette Street, Yarmouth, Maine. For more information and updates visit their website at http://www.royalrivergrillhouse.com.
- Chicken & Waffles – chicken and waffles and eggs and potatoes. Yes, please!
- Salmon Benedict – grilled English muffins, fresh salmon, two poached eggs, covered in hollandaise sauce. All breakfast entrees are served with your choice of house fries or field green salad. Sorry, salad.
- Lobster – of course it’s Lobster, it’s Maine. If your body and your life choices allow you to eat seafood, I highly recommend having lobster at least once while in Maine. You can thank me for it later
B STANDS FOR BEST DRINKS
1. Add 1/2 teaspoon of Absinthe to chilled cocktail glass. Roll glass around to coat inside with Absinthe. MST people discard the excess, but I am not most people. Set glass aside.
2. Add 2 ounces Templeton Rye Whiskey, 3/4 Sweet Vermouth, and 2 teaspoons Lazzaroni Liquori Maraschino Liqueur to mixing glass with ice and stir well. Strain ingredients from mixing glass into Absinthe glass. Enjoy!
3. Looking for some history and culture while drinking your beverage? Visit Natalie’s at Camden Harbour Inn located at 83 Bayview Street, Camden, Maine. The bar has been created from the doors of an old French Convent. Love their reuse, recycle concept. But love their specialty cocktails even more.
Next beverage of choice is the Maine Collins Cocktail. Yes, it has blueberries!
1. Add 8 blueberries, 4 cherries, 1/2 ounce lemon juice and 3/4 ounce simple syrup to a Collins glass. Muddle, muddle, muddle.
2. Add 1 1/2 ounces Bombay Sapphire gin and fill glass with ice. Stir to mix the ingredients. Top off with Club Soda, I used 4 ounces to top off. I also used more than 8 blueberries, they’re Blueberries!
3. Basement bars more your thing? East Street Lounge located at 7 Front Street, Hallowell, Maine, is a drinking town with an antiques problem. The Maine Collins Cocktail might be my new favorite drink of the moment. Wanting to try something different? Easy Street Lounge offers a 64 ounce Mai Tai. Big cheers! Big fun!
