Maine Restaurant Week was started in 2009 as a way to help give Maine restaurants and hotels an added boost during the slower winter months, and has turned into a 10 day long extravaganza featuring many of the top local restaurants with well-known corporate sponsors helping to place the event further on the map. It’s the talk of the town leading up to the big event and certainly tough to get a table at your favorite establishment if you don’t plan ahead. Yet, also a fantastic opportunity to get a taste at many of the finer dining locales at an affordable price. Each of the participating establishments offers a three course lunch and/or dinner menu during the 10 days for you to sample their delightful dishes.
To cap off Maine Restaurant Week, the Signature Event on Sunday, March 10 from 4:30-7:30pm at Prime Mercedes-Benz on Route 1 in Scarborough boasts over 20 bartenders and pastry chefs delivering coacktails and desserts for guests to taste and vote on their favorites. The event is open to the public with tickets purchased benefiting the United Way of Greater Portland. We hear there will be a sushi bar and a DJ to entertain guests with music while they dine.
