You can get a lot more than great lobster rolls in this foodie town: voters loved the pizza, the high-end, farm-to-table dining, and the great coffee. The Blue Spoon in the city’s East End makes a case for great burgers, too. Its Bistro Burger is made with locally raised, Scottish Highland beef, caramelized onions, and red wine. Burgers are a natural part of an all-American vacation, and Portland ranked first for both summer and the 4th of July.
