On a recent trip to Portland, we were lucky enough to grab a later dinner at Lolita. What a sweet and romantic little place. The staff was wonderful - our waitress was incredibly helpful with wine suggestions and wonderfully fun and light. She was there when we needed something without hovering. The food was incredibly yummy. To start, we got two toasts and a pot. Both the Rapini Toast and the Roast Pork Toast were really balanced and packed a punch. The Smoked Bass Pot was the only item that seemed less flavorful - there was little to no flavor of smoke to it and it was overwhelmed with dill. Next we got the Fire Roasted Marrow Bones (the mushrooms that accompanied the marrow were delectable!) and a special Beef Carpaccio which was beautifully cut and delicious. We finished by splitting it close to perfect Bucatini and the sweet and juicy Wood Roasted Clams. The wines we got were super tasty and the pacing of the different course was spot on.
We'll definitely be coming back on our next trip!
