It’s about time that Eve’s, the dining room at the Portland Harbor Hotel, has joined the ranks of hotel and independent restaurants to contribute substantively to our dining scene. Earlier this week I joined a small group put together by the hotel’s marketing team, Gillian and Jim Britt, for a tasting of the new menu that has debuted with some very fine dishes from chef Tim Labonte.
In the past, I’ve been critical of Eve’s, the dining room and the hotel itself. But to stay competitive all lodging and dining operations must be top drawer in how they project themselves. And Eve’s is stepping into the 21st century meaningfully.
