POLL: One Night Only in Portland, Maine

Had I planned this all out better, we would probably be spending a few days in Portland instead of just 24 hours. But this being a trip on a budget, we have to get to New York by Thursday to enjoy four nights of free accommodation (thanks, Mom!), so we're left with too little time to sample what's on offer in the promising city of Portland, Maine (this may necessitate a return trip in the future).


Dinner at the bar at Five Fifty-Five or Evangeline? The duckfat poutine at Duckfat? (Can I handle another poutine?) Fore Street? Bresca? Hugo's? Or is it better to try an appetizer or two at a few of these selections, making the evening something of a "tapas walk" in Portland? 

As usual, please feel free to add whatever we're missing in the comments, and comment on why you made the choice you did. And be sure to include your favorite dish of your choice as well. Cheers.
