East Ender

47 Middle St. Portland, ME




Chefs and co-owners Karl Deuben and Bill Leavy have all-star resumes, but the East Ender has a low-key, casual vibe and no attitude. The varied menu of dishes inspired by a myriad of cultures showcases their enormous talent. There’s everything from pork belly cheese fries to a lobster melt with bacon jam and amazing burgers. Brunch is fabulous, too, featuring house-smoked bacon and tasty cocktails.
