We went to the Drunk Sardine (Pickled Herring) a month back. It was darn good, pretty pricey but darn good. Worth a trip in. He's done a real good job on the intereior.

There's a very complimentary article about the Pickled Herring in this month's Down East. Fully deserving of every accolade.

On Water Street, where La Sardinia used to be (the Mexican place, I'm pretty sure that was the name of it).

Yes, we ate there 3 nights in a row when we were up there a few months ago. Beautiful interiors, excellent food, hope they stay around for a long time.

They can do anything with their wood fired grill or their pizza ovens. They had a lobster cocktail and some lobster/pasta dishes when lobster was so cheap a few months ago that were really good. They have specialty pizzas, like walnut and blue cheese, pasta, seafood, they do nice lamb and barbecued ribs on the grill also. Plus there is this really tasty Merlot from Washington State that runs 24 bucks a bottle, which isn't outrageous for restaurant wine, and allows a couple to soak up the ambiance for a few hours. Several of my kids work there, so I am very happy and grateful that Gary is open at last. As a plug for Bank Square, it does have the best Mexican food around these parts.

I just googled that Pickle herring article. It's written by Wayne Curtis who used to live on Key street for a few years and wrote "Off the Beaten Path" which also features Eastport. Wayne was here two years ago to plug his new book about the history of rum with a lecture and a lot of free samples. a good time was had by all.
