Mainers have developed a Pavlovian response to Norm’s name; in the East End it’s barbecue we drool for. The meat arrives dark, smoky, and a little sweet — perfect with a hoppy beer. People like the huge plate of curly fries drizzled with something sweet and yellow. Yellower and better is the cornbread.
