I was catching up on some reading this morning and noticed The Maine Switch named the opening of the The Frog & Turtle as one of Portland's Top 10 Food Milestones of 2007. Dubbing it Maine's first gastro pub, The Switch said the Westbrook restaurant brought a "large dose of coolness to the up-and-coming mill town."
Ironically, The Switch also mourned the closing of the "short-lived, but much-loved" Chicky's Fine Diner in May 2007. The irony, of course, is that Chicky's was replaced at 3 Bridge Street by The Frog & Turtle.
