Several friends recommended Bangor’s Blaze restaurant, so when we discovered they also have a Blaze in Bar Harbor, we reserved for dinner there during an August visit to Mt. Desert Island. Our son Josh and daughter-in-law Kelly had eaten lunch there that day and raved about it. And were they ever right!
That great meal motivated us to schedule a travel column visit to Blaze in Bangor while we were at the always-wonderful American Folk Festival. Blaze was within walking distance of the festival, right in downtown Bangor, and as we approached the restaurant we were greeted by the very friendly hostess, Meghan, who had thoughtfully set tables for us both inside and outside. We opted for inside because it was cooler and beautiful with wood and brick walls.
