Abstract

"Focus on Tourism & Hospitality" piece on "gastro-tourism" and Maine's new-found dining fame, fueled by award-winning chefs and national accolades.

Local food editor Kathy Hayden thinks Portland restaurants should collaboratively market Portland as a food destination. Successful restaurateurs are leary about the effect advertising might have on their upscale image.
