A Culinary Tour of Maine -- Anthony Bordain

Maine is known for its lobsters.

And, maybe, known among some for its potatoes. But, I don't really ever hear Maine touted as culinary destination.

But, really, it should be. (Fresh seafood. Locally grown produce. Good, real flavor. And, plenty of terrific restaurants.)

Perhaps now, after tonight's episode of Anthony Bordain's No Reservations (a good episode--definitely check it out) it will be. Mr. Bordain travels to some great local flavor spots - including one of my very favorite's -- a little very funky and rustic seaside shack in Rockland called Conte's.

On the one hand, I'm thrilled to see my taste gets a celebrity seal of approval and tickled for Mr. Conte's well-being.

On the other hand, I dread the fact that our little off-the-beaten-path-favorite-date-place is now going to be not-so-well-off-the-beaten-path.


PS. We were actually at Street & Co (our first time there!) the night Anthony Bordain's crew was there preparing to film.
