Reinventing the Fork

Odlin Road's My Fork to change its format for the New Year

BANGOR Bigger doesn't always mean better. My Fork, the restaurant and lounge situated on 268 Odlin Road in Bangor, is undergoing a change that will bring the owners back to their family restaurant roots.

Lewis and Dustin Littlefield are co-owners of the restaurant and are reducing the size and scope of what they offer. Rather than offering a restaurant, sports lounge and live music venue, the father-and-son team have decided to simplify and present a family-oriented restaurant with home-cooked meals in a smaller, more comfortable setting.

Italian Bistro opens on Hammond St.

BANGOR - James Gallagher hasn't had a day off of work in years, and that's just the way he likes it.

This 24-year-old owns seven businesses, and they're all located on Hammond Street. His latest venture is La Cena, an Italian Bistro located across from Papa Gambino's.

"I love Italian food, and I wanted to do something different in the area because everyone has 'copy pot sandwiches' and pizza," Gallagher explained.

So along with his Breaking Bread soup kitchen; JG Development, a real estate and rental company; James Gallagher Design, a staging and interior design company and his numerous other businesses, Gallagher opened La Cena. It's the one place that's putting his two years of culinary experience from United Technologies Center in Bangor on the front burner.

A hot dog education at College Dogs

New Orono restaurant features specialty hot dogs

ORONO When most of us think of hot dogs, we more or less think of the same thing. A bunch of hot dogs on the grill, a bag of rolls and a handful of basic condiments ketchup, mustard, relish. That tends to be our default thought process with regards to hot dogs.

But then you visit a place like College Dogs, located in the University Mall at 6 Stillwater Avenue in Orono. College Dogs is the kind of restaurant that reminds you of the true and epic potential of the hot dog.

'I moved here from Fall River (Massachusetts) about a year ago,' said Jody Blanchette, owner-operator of College Dogs. 'I came up to visit some friends in the Old Town/Orono area and liked it so much I decided to move here with my family.

'I was looking for a way to make a living,' he continued, 'so I decided to bring something that wasn't around here; stuff like hot dogs, fried treats, steamed burgers, fried dinner plates and home cooked food.'
