Many of my favorite restaurants have reduced hours and/or reduced menus and/or are doing takeout only. But, as always in Maine, folks have been incredibly resourceful in responding to new circumstances. My advice is to always check websites/FB before making plans as things seem to evolve constantly.
Up In Smoke BBQ has added Taco Tuesdays (Tuesday 4 to 8) to their Thursday through Saturday lunch hours. Also there is a bunch of new distanced seating but almost all of it is in full sun. The food is as fabulous as ever. (They do not open if it’s really rainy because it’s too hard to keep the pit burning properly. Check FB.)
Home Kitchen Café has some limited outdoor seating and is doing takeout. They have expanded hours (early supper some days) but are still closed on Tuesdays. They have added french fries to the menu for the first time ever!
Café Miranda is doing Pizza on the Street – Friday through Monday evenings you can get a full slab, half slab or quarter slab of wood-fired pizza (each comes with salad) or a handful of pastas, beer or wine, picked up on the street. Order ahead. Very tasty, a quarter slab is two meals for me. They have blocked off part of the street and put out well-distanced picnic tables.
Hazel’s Takeout is open for lunch Monday through Saturday, has distanced picnic tables.
Salty Owl Café is doing curbside bake sale pick-ups Saturdays only, orders must be in by Friday afternoon.
Ancho Honey in Tenant’s Harbor is new this summer with a focus on takeout, very little seating. Tasty limited menu and really good homemade frozen dinners. I was able to do contact-free (as in, never saw anyone) pickup of some of those frozen dinners from them during my “from away” quarantine, by going at an off hour. Was really helpful for my sanity.
The Belfast, Camden and Rockland Farmers Markets are open but with fewer vendors than in the past.
Bleecker & Greer (Maine Street Meats) has reduced hours and is only letting 5 people at a time into the store. You can order ahead and do contact-free pickup.
Beth’s Farm Market is open normal hours (daily, 8 to 6) and has a good set-up. Like all stores they are limiting the number of customers allowed in at a time. I went at 8:30 on a Sunday morning and was literally the only customer in the store. A friend went in the afternoon and found a discouragingly long line. They are still doing the strawberry shortcakes and on weekends the jerk chicken lunches.
I will add more as I experience it.
