Duckfat | French Fry Nirvana | Portland, ME

Last weekend I took my first visit to Portland, Maine. I didn’t know much about the city before arriving, except that I was going to Duckfat….before doing anything else. If you haven’t heard of it, Duckfat is an adorably whimsical sandwich shop started by husband and wife team Nancy Pugh and Rob Evans (of Portland restaurant Hugo’s), who was awarded best chef in the Northeast by the James Beard Foundation in 2009. The tiny restaurant has gotten the attention of everyone from … read more
