Kennebunkport Restaurant (Bistro) Review - Port Bistro
Why is it also known as Gail's To Go? Gail, or one of her wonderful helpers, will deliver anything you want. She has even been known to deliver to the beach (really). If you would like to take a lunch to the beach or, for a day of sightseeing, try one of the bagged lunches. She stuffs a delightful canvas bag with a cold sandwich or wrap, crispy kettle chips, Poland Spring water, whole fruit and a brownie. What a convenient way to bring a lunch to the beach without the worry of losing your parking space. Many of our guests at the Maine Stay Inn enjoy deliveries to their room for both dinner and lunch.
Janice and I stopped by for lunch at Port Bistro today. Gail suggested one of her tables next to the window so we could catch the breeze. Perfect! We overlooked the pleasant activity of Dock Square as we started our lunch with dessert (as Gail put it, "life's short, why not start with dessert"). We split a warm, just out of the oven, white chocolate chip fresh maine blueberry cookie. You thought I was going to say macadamia nut, me too. But the combination of white chocolate and fresh maine blueberries was fantastic. When you go, ask if she has them and don't wait until after your meal to eat it.
The main course for me was a Buffalo Chicken wrap. It was sooo good. The warm, crusted chicken topped with a spicy hot sauce and wrapped with lettuce and tomato is perfect if you like hot stuff like me. (sorry, that sounds wrong, I'm not hot stuff. I like hot stuff also. I hope that clears it up) There is just enough hot sauce to satisfy your craving but not so much that you need a shower after eating this wrap.
Janice had the Veggie Quesadilla with sour cream and salsa. Being the critic in the family, of course I got to try her meal (it's my job). The quesadilla was excellent, especially when topped off with Gail's mild-to-medium salsa.
During a previous trip to Port Bistro, I sampled Port Bistro's Thai Chicken Pizza. Gail makes a 10'' personal pizza. Well, I call it a personal pizza in hopes that no one will expect a slice from me. The Thai Chicken Pizza is simply awesome. If you have read my previous articles, you know my downfall as a food critic is that, if I find something that I love, I stick with it. I would have had the pizza today however, we are going out to dinner this evening and I didn't want to fill up too much.
Here is a link to the Port Bistro menu. Check it out, there are so many good things to have. And, what a pleasant way to spend a Kennebunkport lunch. It's so nice, you will return.
