Opening for its second season on Great Diamond Island, Memorial Day Weekend 2019, this seaside gem located in a refurbished general store is a culinary destination. Signature dishes like "fried green things" and grilled oysters return with the balmy days and sultry nights. Chef Rocky Hunter and owner Alex Wight are working on some "fun collaborations" this year along with an enhanced menu. Visit the pastel paradise a mere 15 minute ferry ride from the Old Port. www.crownjewelportland.com
