I've been to Portland ME a handful of times, most recently in Jan 18 and I'm so fortunate to have found EVO a few months ago. http://evoportland.com
With the location you might think its a hotel restaurant, but I can assure you it's not.
The flavors, the freshness, the attention to detail, the staff are all impeccable.
Grab a seat at the open kitchen bar, have Michelle make you a cocktail, get started with the chickpea fries and watch the staff do its evo thing.
I'd like to think those fries are healthy because they're certainly tasty.
I didnt choose my fave Gnocchi dish this time, but did try the oh so tender lamb with pasta pillows.
In addition the chef surprised us with a wonderful falafal dish and a new dessert, what I might call chocolate/cranberry heaven.
Evo, by itself, is worth a trip to Portland!
