We love trying new restaurants and supporting small local businesses, so when Urban Element opened?
We were all in.
Do you love me?
Am I supposed to love you?
I just walked in…
Stop trying so hard.
The new trend in restaurant decor in Maine seems to be minimalist rustic. While I’m fine with barn boards and a lack of clutter….
The chairs that are popping up everywhere seriously make me want to scream.
They’re metal, with small seats and side bars that painfully pin you in place. Definitely not for the amply hipped who walk amongst us.
If the plan is to get you in and out quickly?
These rustic torture devices do the trick.
It was Sunday afternoon at 2:00. And a couple of Happy Time Fizz cocktails made me quite happy indeed….
But here’s another trend that continues to tick me off.
I understand, it’s the weekend. You don’t get up early, and you want to eat breakfast late. Fine.
But it’s 2:00pm people! If you just recently rolled out of bed? You’re a teenage stoner sleeping one off and can’t afford these prices anyway.
To me, 2:00pm means lunch…even on Sunday. I had eaten breakfast 7 hours ago and didn’t feel the need to repeat the process.
The specials? All breakfast. The menu? 99% breakfast with one exception. The fried haddock sandwich.
They brought it..
I’ve had thicker fish sandwiches at McDonalds and I wasn’t even sure that was fish.
Mentally tallying up the reasons we weren’t apt to go back to this restaurant, I did what any normal (still rather hungry from lack of fish) girl would do.
I drowned my sorrows in flourless chocolate torte.
That’s my kind of math.
