Where to Eat in Every State Capital…including Augusta
Mapquest has released their list for ‘The Best Bites in All 50 State Capitals.’ The criteria for formulating their list included: Where the politicos hang out, where you can feel like a local and perhaps enjoy the local or state specialty and the best restaurant in town.
Here’s what they say about Maine’s capital city, Augusta:
Riverfront Barbecue isn’t truly riverfront and it isn’t close to the Capitol either, but it is where legislators go, for Memphis dry rub ribs and single malt scotch. Family-owned, decades-old The Red Barn is an institution drawing Mainers from miles around for the seafood stew, onion rings, and fried clams; limited inside seating, picnic table seating in warmer months. A few miles down the road in historic Hallowell is the waterfront Joyce’s, known for its prime rib and lobster panini.
What restaurant would you have added to the list?
