Today's Boston Globe has an article on Rabelais Books, a new book store concentrating on food, wine, farm and garden books. Rabelais Books, which just opened in April, is owned by Don and Samantha Hoyt Lindgren. Rabelais stocks new, old and rare books. It is located in Portland, Maine, on Middle Street and across from the Duck Fat restaurant. It sounds like a fascinating store, something that will appeal to foodies and wine lovers.
Portland, Maine is a great foodie destination with so many excellent restaurants. It is especially a great location for a summer visit, to while away the day touring around the city. I think that Rabelais will make a good addition to the city and I eagerly await checking it out on my next visit to Portland.
