We're a bit late with the news: the restaurant Porthole, which sits on Custom House Wharf in Portland, Maine, was closed by the city health department at the end of last summer. We read the news at the time but never heard any followup news. Turns out the owner, who bought the restaurant in 1998, claimed that it would cost too much to bring the restaurant up to code, so he never reopened. The owner of the wharf took over the restaurant, made the necessary changes, and just reopened Porthole a few days ago. We'll leave the review of Porthole up for the day, then archive it pending a visit to the new Porthole.
