Peter Peter Portland Eater grew up in Lewiston, Maine and graduated from the University of Maine in Orono with a degree in English. After college, he left the state to work in Massachusetts, but the allure of a more comfortable life in his home state brought him back after eight years. Upon his return and after meeting his now wife – Mrs. Portlandeater, he slowly integrated himself into the Portland food scene by trying as many restaurants as he could afford. That and a desire to write for others again led him to start Peterpeterportlandeater.com where he reviews restaurants and blogs about whatever Portland/Maine food topics he finds interesting.
Peter’s blogs are regularly shared by Maine food media outlets and he has been on the forefront of discovering the newest and best restaurants in the area since 2013 in addition to reminding readers about those that have stood the test of time. He has blogged about working on the Restaurant: Impossible episode featuring Uncle Andy’s in South Portland, previewed many new restaurants, had a review used in the book The New Single Malt Whiskey, and recently interviewed Ginger Zee – Lead Meteorologist for Good Morning America and ABC News.
In his BDN blog, you can expect Peter to live up to his name, eating at more places than ever and letting readers know the delicious, the not so delicious, and the downright scary – the latter two of which he tries to avoid. He’ll take you on a virtual culinary tour as he eats, drinks, and records it all in words and pictures. If you like what he has to say, or if you don’t, let him know. In return, he’ll produce the best content he can in order to make you smile, salivate, and wish you were there.
