  • The King’s Head
    In 1775, King George III ordered the British Navy to burn the city of Falmouth to the ground in retaliation for the Boston Tea Party. But he didn't realize that ?he was sowing the seeds of mockery that would echo even two centuries later. The rubble from the shelling formed a wharf in the harbor of the city that would become known as Portland, and on that debris, modern barmen Rick Binet and Justin O'Conner built the King's Head. Binet honors the revolutionary tradition with a thumb in the eye of the tyrant and a sizable offering of fine craft beers. Nearby breweries such as Portland's own Foundation and New Hampshire's White Birch take the spotlight among 40 drafts on tap, and from further afield come the likes of Chimay Triple and Thornbridge. Meanwhile, the kitchen serves smoked rabbit pot pies and grass-fed beef burgers to diners seated in a room featuring a 12-seat glass wine bar, with wines available by the bottle or glass, that overlooks the Wharf.

  • The Grill Room & Bar
    Some meat-centric restaurants may try to evoke an old-time Western ranch, but chef Harding Lee Smith dubs The Grill Room & Bar an “urban steakhouse.” Although the open, high-ceilinged dining room exudes plenty of rustic charm, Smith is most inspired by his restaurant's own bustling neighborhood and the local farms beyond it. Starring in a cast of fresh, locally grown produce are grass-fed, all-natural meats from New Gloucester's Pineland Farms. These meats—think spice-rubbed skirt steaks, butterflied pork chops, and organic Cornish game hen—are seared on the open kitchen’s wood-fired grill and then plated with modern flourishes such as truffled mash and grilled onion jam. Seafood dishes benefit equally from the wood grills, while a wood pizza oven creates crackly, chewy pies such as a duck and brie pizza with shaved apples and balsamic syrup. Wines range through France, Italy, and New Zealand, and bartenders kick out cocktails such as hot buttered rum and the Creole Bull, a Twenty-2 vodka concoction with peppers and smoked peppercorns. Desserts tend toward the rich and creamy, with house-made bean crème brulee and New York–style cheesecakes whose flavors vary with the seasons and the Statue of Liberty's moods.
