The first half of the summer of 2019 will see a number of new restaurants open in the Bangor area — two from established Maine restaurateurs, and one from a newbie on the dining scene. The new establishments will broaden Bangor’s pizza offerings, bring Middle Eastern specialties to the city and expand the availability of New Jersey-style subs in the area.

Portland Pie Company
Portland Pie Company this week opens its first Bangor restaurant, located at 89 Main St. in downtown Bangor, the former location of Verve Burritos. Portland Pie announced in April that it would expand to Bangor, adding to its seven other locations in Waterville, Brunswick, Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Biddeford and Manchester, New Hampshire.
Portland Pie staff extensively renovated both the interior and exterior of 89 Main St., removing the elevated seating areas and ordering counters that were in place previously, and opening up the space to allow for more seating. The exterior now has new signage, and the recessed entryway has been remodeled to open directly onto the sidewalk.
The Bangor restaurant serves sandwiches, salads, an array of craft beer and appetizers and, of course, pizza, including classic pies and speciality pies such as The County (mashed potatoes, caramelized onion, bacon and cheddar) and the Crescent Beach (American cheese, hamburger, onion, bacon, romaine, sesame seeds, pickles, ketchup and mustard). It’ll be open for lunch and dinner, seven days a week, and will offer delivery in Bangor.
