The new Embarcadero restaurant Angler is supposed to be the more casual spin-off of Saison, though saying something is more casual than Saison, where dinner starts at $298 a head, is like calling someone less royal than Queen Elizabeth. It’s true that Angler has no tasting menu, no tablecloths and no cushy banquette pillows. And you do have to pull your own silverware out of a cup.

Palace Diner in Biddeford, Maine, was the sole representative from our fair part of the country, and Addison had some fine words for the casual eatery that serves breakfast and lunch at a 15-seat counter. “Eating here haunts me: I can’t find better light, lemony, buttery pancakes, or a more precisely engineered egg sandwich, and theirs is the only tuna melt I ever hunger after,” he wrote. “Location plays a charming role: Sleepy but quickly burgeoning Biddeford, Maine (also home to Rabelais, one of the country’s finest food-focused booksellers), sits about 20 miles south of Portland. … [Read more...] about This is the only New England spot on Eater’s 38 essential restaurants list
