Mike Urban, the food writer who lives on the Connecticut shoreline, has been writing about great places to eat in New England for about a dozen years in four different books along with many more articles for Yankee magazine.

His newest book takes a deep dive into the food of Maine, our New England neighbor sometimes referred to as the Vacation State because so many people vacation there. Maine is known for its lobsters with tender and sweet meat, and they certainly make an appearance in this new book. But the places he features in this book serve a whole lot more than just lobsters.
