Sonny’s Bar and Lounge

I’d heard rumors. Whispers mostly. Fading like a wisp of smoke in the “almost heat” of Portland’s “nearly Summer”. This week’s Page One Friday Lunch was to be held at Sonny’s.

Sonny’s has the reputation of serving stiff drinks to a varied clientele of hipsters, yuppies and vacationers alike; all with the common goal of catching a buzz… fast.

If I happen to paint a picture of the staff at Page One as a group of drunkard miscreants, it’s only because we fit the stereotype exactly.Read More »

Zen Chinese Bistro

At long last Portland has a REALLY good Chinese food restaurant on par with the big cities! Head out of the Old Port towards the West End on historic Danforth Street, and you’ll find Zen Bistro. Maine has certainly not been known for this style of food, but Zen is bringing it to us.  Solid meals all around. They provide that light, fresh, Gluten Free no MSG taste that we look for in Asian Cuisine. Zen boasts that they specialize in gluten free, vegan and healthier Chinese cooking. It should also be mentioned they are the proud winners of Portland’s Best Chinese Restaurant of 2014. We had takeout this week, so for Zen to have such a good review is impressive.

You may look at the menu and think, “Eh, your standard Chinese food”, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised at Zen’s take on the traditional dishes.Read More »

The Green Elephant

Our First Review: The Green Elephant

Hello. Welcome to Page One Web Solutions’ restaurant and lunch review website. Sure, we are a web development, marketing, and SEO company, but our team is comprised of serious foodies, beer/cider/wine enthusiasts, and bourbon fanatics. Every Friday, we venture out into Portland, Maine’s expanse of exceptional eateries, cafes, food trucks, dives, bistros, shacks, and so much more. This small city nestled on the Atlantic coastline has an abundance of diversely delectable offerings that can be enjoyed any time of day. Hey, I know what you’re thinking– “wow, these Portlanders really like their food, maybe too much – ehm, gluttons!” – and I say to you, we have really long winters, okay!

At Page One, we have been upholding this lunch tradition for over 6 years, and since the city has so much to offer we thought it might be time to share it. Our first review begins in a cozy bistro located in the heart Congress Street’s Arts District, the Green Elephant. This Asian-inspired vegetarian bistro has a tranquil atmosphere and cordial staff. The restaurant does not take reservations– and we have 15 people on our team–so let’s just say, they were extremely accommodating to our party’s needs in such a small space.
