Executive Chef, Josh Berry, believes in local and seasonal ingredients, which I wholeheartedly support. He also believes in delicious aromas because the minute you walk into UNION you smell amazing things coming from the open concept kitchen.
Portland, Maine is a special place. It's a small town with a very big culture. They've had a huge influx of amazing restaurants, shops and hotels over the past 15 years, and I have to say, I think it's one of the coolest cities in the US.
One of the hippest spots in town is The Press Hotel. Part of the Autograph Collection's hotel chain, The Press is located in the former home of the Portland Press Herald, Maine's largest newspaper.
I'm in Maine a lot. Like a lot, a lot.
Portland has become one of the coolest cities over the past decade, and I'm so happy to call it homebase. We moved a bit when I was growing up, and my family would always go to Portland during the summer. With all of the changing scenery, Portland was our constant. I 1000% took Portland for granted, but now I am so thankful that I can visit anytime I want.
