PORTLAND, Maine — Restaurants across the state are gearing up for the third annual Maine Restaurant Week, taking place March 1-12. Restaurants around Maine will participate in the event by featuring special three-course dinners ranging in price from $20-$40. Some restaurants will also offer three-course prix-fixe lunches from $15.
Restaurant Week celebrates the vibrancy and richness of Maine’s culinary traditions while giving restaurants a much-needed boost during the slowest time of the year.
