203 time makes it hard to choose. Book early or plan on a wait at Fore Street, arguably one of the top restaurants in the country. A third of the tables are available for walk- ins, or enjoy creative light bites in the tiny shabby-chic lounge—but arrive before six o'clock if you don't want to wait. Down the street at Restaurant Five Fifty-Five, diners don't have to choose between dishes like Hudson Valley foie gras, diver scallops, topped with Japanese mayo and pepper relish for a small treat. Still hungry? Snack at Duck Fat, where the slender fries are cooked in, yes, duck fat. Dip them in the house made truffle ketchup. From there, waddle over to nearby Shipyard Brewing Company, where about a dozen different selections from the craft brewer are available to sample for free. The embarrassment of riches at dinner- and truffle mac 'n' cheese—guests can create their own five-course tasting menu from à la carte items or put themselves in the capable hands of award-winning chefs Steve Corry and Matt Ginn. For a lighter meal, visit Eventide, where the cocktail list entices with a celery gimlet or a "Bubbly Mary" and every wine on the list is chosen for its ability to pair well with raw oysters. No one lives by bread alone, and Portland Down East The Winslow Homer Studio and Museum is a must-stop on your trip north. Left, Create your own five-course meal at Restaurant Five Fifty-Five.
