Sometimes a night out doesn’t go as planned, but can still be wonderful fun. We headed into Portland on a recent Friday evening intending to go to the Little Tap House but an event at the Cross Insurance Arena made parking in the area unmanageable so instead we ventured to the Old Port to see what we could find. This time we had parking success and, after a brief stop into Sonny’s, where we were unable to find seating at the bar, we wandered over to Timber Steakhouse & Rotisserie.
We were looking for something more casual but decided to have one drink at the bar to check things out. My husband ordered an Allagash Curieux at our bartender’s recommendation, and I went with the Terlano Pinot Grigio which was excellent. We split an order of the hand cut fries with Jalapeño ketchup and truffle parmesan aoili. I’m pretty much a Heinz ketchup girl and was surprised at how much I enjoyed the Jalapeño ketchup. It added just the right touch of extra flavor.
