Restaurant Week /Friday... Clementine/Boda

I always try to move away from Portland at least once during restaurant week and Friday I planned on going to Brunswick to visit Clementine figuring I would actually eat something later at in Portland.
Going up the ramp and turning right onto Main Street, Clementine is the second door down. It's a cozy place, 14 tables tops and 2/4 seats at the bar. The kitchens isn't tiny and functions well, but it's not large either.

House cured Gravlox

Country Pork Pate

Lobster Tortellini

The soup of the day/ Pumpkin

Provencal Seafood Stew

Sauteed Sea Scallops

Lock Duart Salmon

Tenderloin Tips
Ta Dah! The Desserts!
Buttermilk-Mint Panna Cotta, for some reason no one had ordered this delight, so the made one up for me to shoot and best of all I got to eat it as well! Lovely, light and oh so delicious.

Coconut Macaroon, unfortunately I didn't get to taste this, but an excuse to return.

Chocolate Marquise,
You don't have to wait for a special occasion to try Clementine,
they feature a 25$ prix fixe option on the menu all the time!

The later would turn out to be Boda! 
Toby and I had eaten there not to long ago 
and enjoyed it very much, sitting next to Richard & Christine Suydam, of Gryffon Ridge, makers of all manner of spices.

I think the layout and feel of Boda is very nice. It is dim inside and bright outside in Longfellow Square with lots of energy and must be especially so at Christmas when the lights are hung in the trees.

I found a seat at the upper bar
and ordered a
soup and curry a la carte having had a salad and dessert earlier.
