Had a wonderful meal at chef/owner Krista Kern Desjarlais's Bresca on Middle Street in Portland. This 18 seat , 4 nights a week only, serves up great food by a really nice staff. While there are many options in Portland, I might skip the 'big guys' and head to Bresca, if you are luckily enough to snag a table. And don't forget to order the cheese.

Starting with a grilled Rhode Island squid salad, followed by a dozen oysters from Maine (winter point, pine point, pemaquid, north haven, john's river and shallow bay); lightly cured artic char (fried bagel, creme fraiche, red onion).
