Grazing with the brunch bunch
More than three dozen Maine growers and harvesters supply the tables at the Harraseeket, but the Sunday brunch buffet often features steamed and chilled lobster (drawn butter optional). The idea is to help local fishermen and diners alike while lobster prices are depressed. Beyond the signature crustacean, the kitchen gets creative with whatever suits the season. Count on roasted joints of meat, a few hearty pasta choices, at least one fancy egg dish, and a crepe station. Fuel up on the bake shop desserts before you hit the outlet stores. 162 Main St., Freeport, Maine, 207-865-9377, www.harraseeketinn.com. Brunch Sunday 11:45 a.m.- 2 p.m. $24.95.
