Eat Big in a Small City

5. Oddball Day


The colorful dining room at Solo Bistro Bistro.  

Travel about an hour northeast of Portland to visit Phippsburg, home of the secluded Seawall Beach. Follow a two-mile trail through woods and marshland within the 600-acre Bates-Morse Mountain conservation area. The mile-long beach is moody and deserted in autumn; bring along a flask and watch the fog creep over the water. After the excursion, head to nearby Bath, off Route 1, a pretty, old shipping city for a bite to eat. Solo Bistro Bistro serves dishes like pan-seared scallops and spring rolls with duck rillettes and sweet potato in an airy, modern dining room.
