  • Andrew Zimmern and a bowl of cod and sperm chowder at Hugo's in Portland, ME. As seen on Bizarre Foods.
  • Hugo's opened in 1999 and put Portland on the map for food lovers. Don't skip the "blind tasting menu," and don't even think of leaving without trying a Peanut Butter Cup cake.
  • Totally awesome dining experience my palate is on fire with happiness
  • Inventive food that works paired with great service. Excellent crisp pork belly, swordfish belly, beef with tomatillo jam. Very accommodating of my son's dairy and fish allergy.
  • Recommended by local chef Masa Miyake of Miyake and Pai Men Miyake: "The chefs tasting menu at Hugos is always outstanding. It's for the adventurous who arent afraid to eat a little cod sperm."
  • Just get the blind tasting menu. Seriously. It's awesome.
  • Chef Rob Evans is so talented. Nominated as the Best Chef in the Northeast by the James Beard Foundation in 2007 & 2009 - he never went to cooking school! Try the bar menu for something unique & tasty
  • Blind tasting menu... AWESOME...

  • Really well seasoned, imaginative, well presented and portioned food. Excellent service. Just a great bigger night out type spot. Biggest night with tasting I assume but we were just not that hungry
  • The vegetarian menu was divine. Amazing place.
  • I would call this a dining experience esp if you are a foodie. Unique approach to the tasting menu essentially you choose categories such as fowl
  • Awesome food! One of the best restaurants I have been.
  • Chef's tasting
  • Second time her and an absolute pleasure each time. Menu is continually changing, go with the 5 course you will not be disappointed. You can choose from the sea, field and beef
  • The best reason to come to Hugo's is the homey peanut butter cup, a warm bittersweet chocolate cake served with peanut butter ice cream.
  • The newly remodeled old standby made modern by current co-owners Andrew Taylor, Mike Wiley and Arlin Smith provides a fine dining experience unlike any other in the city. [Eater 18 Member]
