If you want to experience dinning at near perfection in Portland Maine, then you must visit Emilitsa. From the moment we walked in, we had that feeling that this was going to be a great experience because not only was the overall design of the space beautiful and subtle, but the staff was very friendly and welcoming. Service was great, with a careful balance of menu knowledge, a keen sense of urgency and yet, without a hint of being forced, rushed or overwhelmed.
The food...BRAVO! We had several appetizers to start, perfection, especially the scallops.
I had the duck, again, perfection. If you love duck, this is duck heaven. Medium rare with just the right amount of duck fat left on the breast, charred to a crispy and juicy deliciousness. My girlfriend had the lamb which was also charred to perfection. Who ever is working the grill at this place, knows how to cook meat. For dessert, try the rice pudding, it was almost like a crème brule but better. This is a place for people who will enjoy dinning at it's best. Exceptional!
