Hope everyone had a chance to enjoy the gorgeous weather this past weekend! I was in Maine visiting my family. My Mom and I celebrated Mother’s Day with lunch at Lolita on Munjoy Hill in Portland. It’s a charming little spot with 36-seats and a smattering of Mediterranean-style small plates to choose from.
For starters, I sipped a deliciously smokey rum and lime cocktail called the Hemingway Toddy and nibbled on a trio of cheeses from New England including Lakin’s Gorges Prix de Diane from Rockport, ME (which I loved). I also ordered the Braised Leek Tart which was perfect with a delicate salad of mixed greens and spicy herb vinaigrette. The star of the meal, however was my Mom’s torrija or Spanish-style french toast, fried in olive oil and drizzled with honey. It was spectacular!
I’m anxious to go back this Summer for outdoor seating, wood grilled clams and rosé!
