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.

One really nice egg with one blueberry pancake

Eventide Oyster Co. Portland, ME

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).

DC pie

Good pizza at Mike Isabella's Graffiato.
Roasted potatoes and Caesar salad were also tasty but the roasted brussels sprouts were a bit sweet for me.
