A blog about all things Maine

In lieu of a post… please read this piece from the Portland Press Herald

In lieu of a post today, I want to direct you to a Portland Press Herald article I read and enjoyed this morning.  Written by Meredith Goad, Staff Writer, this piece, with the headline “Portland’s hardest-working chef piles more on his plate,” is all about Harding Lee Smith, owner of the popular “Room” restaurants.  Personally, I very much appreciated Goad’s balanced approach to telling Smith’s story – covering not only how his upbringing and youthful experiences contributed to his current and future success, but also the ways in which the negative press has dogged him at times.  I would say his success speaks for itself, and I wish him all the best with this new endeavor.

I hope you enjoy this article as well, and I know I’ll certainly be visiting one of Smith’s restaurants during my next trip to Maine!
