In a state full of well-known and well-respected lobster establishments, Bite Into Maine —a seasonal mobile eatery in the Portland area, owned by couple Karl and Sarah Sutton — has been making a name for itself with its six traditional and original lobster rolls, all on New England-style buns. Along with Maine and Connecticut style rolls, the “Picnic” style contains a layer of coleslaw, hot butter, and a dash of celery salt. For adventurous eaters, rolls get a little saucy with flavors of wasabi, curry, and chipotle. Side orders are fun, too: Consider warm baked beans with Maine maple syrup and wild Maine blueberries; or a corn, cucumber, and blueberry salad; or maybe creamy red potato salad with green onion. Its location at Fort Williams Park is quite lovely, with views of Portland Head Light, a frequently photographed landmark.
