While wandering through the east coast on an intrepid road trip we landed upon York Maine looking for dinner. Fortunately we found Frankie and Johnny's and were lucky enough to get last minute reservations. We had the first table from the kitchen which was the front seat to a theater of amazing dishes. One after another gorgeous plate caused "order torture". My husband and I started to negotiate our decisions in order to make sure each of us would be able to share and extend our own choices.
Frankie shared the story of this restaurant and her family dynamics with such great boisterous enthusiasm that we just knew that this family joy and intensity would transfer into the an unforgettable dinner.
Lobster pockets were the most divine appetizer. Dinner salad was a colorful melange of greens, fruit, veggies,candied nuts and blueberry vinaigrette dressing. The best salad we've ever had. I think I had haddock with grilled vegetables and my husband had pork medallions with a citrus sauce and roasted pear.
Sauces were delicate, flavorful and absolutely fresh. Dessert was chocolate coconut ice cream that had the lightest touch and texture but still amazingly flavorful. 7 days later just describing this adventure has made me famished.
Unfortunately, nothing I eat for dinner tonight will measure up.
