Infinite Brooklyns

By BRIAN DUFF  |  October 24, 2014

Ten Ten Pié is built for to-go, but thanks to a window counter you can eat with a view of the most interesting and multicultural street life in town. You don’t find this sort of street in Biddeford—just ask Robert Wilson, the legendary local tin-foil artist, dropped off a fantastic foil Elvis (currently on display) and bemoaned his relocation to the Biddo. One of Ten Ten Pié’s activist side projects is transforming Franklin Street nearby. That “arterial” is for folks getting in and out of the city. In fact it is Cumberland that is the true artery for the most interesting folks crossing our town. Now with Ten Ten Pié (along with Schulte and Herr, and Union Bagels), there is good food to be had on a street worthy of it.

$  Ten Ten Pié | 171 Cumberland Ave, Portland | Mon-Tues 10:30 am-4:00 pm; Wed-Fri 7:00 am-4:00 pm; Sat 8:00 am-3:00 pm | Visa/MC/Amex | 207.956.7330

    Because music is now basically free (thanks to torrents, Pandoras, Spotifies, etc.), the only way for musicians to make money is through constant touring and related merchandise sales. Or they can appear as a judge on The Voice. Food, on the other hand, will still cost ya...

    The National Institutes of Health just published a randomized study that confirms the rumors: carbohydrates are poison and should be avoided. So how should we feel about Slab Sicilian Streetfood?

    The lessons of Lolita are that something simpler and less challenging can be lovely, and that some cheap wine could really loosen things up.
