Steve and Michelle Corry, the proprietors of Five Fifty-Five, arrived in Portland armed with a passionate vision and extensive experience in the restaurant industry. Steve began his culinary career as a brew master at several breweries in Northern California. In 1999, he attended the New England Culinary Institute in Burlington Vermont. After graduating in 2001, he returned to California to work at Domaine Chandon in Napa Valley. A graduate of Boston University with a Bachelor's Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration, Michelle Corry has worked at numerous prestigious establishments, including the French Laundry in Napa. Together, they have envisioned a dining experience that would combine a comfortable atmosphere, professional service, and fresh, simple, and delicious food sourced locally. Steve and Michelle Corry would like to welcome you to their first collaborative, Five Fifty-Five.

"We have been to 555 several times and each time is as good or better than the last. Everything was delicious and the fare would be nearly twice as much in New York or Boston."

"Delicious lunch! Great sandwiches and hamburgers. You'd have to go to Boston to get better food. Also, an inviting atmosphere. Just go!"

A farm to table American restaurant with a focus on seafood. Our menus change daily to reflect the best of what the markets have to offer and allows us to feature the work of many local artisans, growers and fishermen. A three course seafood tasting menu is always available. Jeremy and Lisa Sewall created Lineage Restaurant"s concept. We are a married couple with extensive culinary experience and deep New England roots. Located in the heart of Coolidge Corner, Brookline, Massachusetts, the name "Lineage" is based on Jeremy's own. In 1705, when this "Muddy River" hamlet of Boston became incorporated, Samuel Sewall, son of Judge Sewall of Salem Witch Trials fame, lent the community his services as the first Town Clerk and, it is thought, the name of his family's "Brooklin" lands, which lay between the Charles and Muddy Rivers.

"Best restaurant in Brookline. Great seafood. Don't leave without getting the signature dessert – butterscotch pudding. Oh, the lobster gnocchi is excellent!"

With two "U"-shaped counters situated around an open kitchen, Sportello (Italian for counter service) offers a menu of Chef Barbara Lynch's trattoria-inspired Italian dishes for both lunch and dinner. A modern interpretation of a diner located in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood, Sportello features an approachable, artisan wine list curated by James Beard Award Winner Cat Silirie. Snag a stool at the counter and enjoy a bowl of handmade pasta! <br /><br />Please note: Sportello is primarily counter seating, but does have several tables for more conventional seating. Tables are available for parties of five or more or by request. Requests are honored based on availability. <br />

"This is a very casual restaurant setting, but they serve delicious food. My wife had the home made gnocchi and I had the pork loin. Both are highly recommended. The best of all may be their signature coconut cake, which is the best coconut cake anywhere."

"… is the reason to come here. It's a decent local eatery but on Monday nights with $5 cheeseburgers and $1 jumbo shrimp it becomes a wonderful "price/value" dining out place. On other nights, not bad, but nothing memorable."

"It was wonderful. Delicious cuisine in an attractive setting. They really know how to cook seafood (although the hamburger at the next table looked great). We had the halibut and scallops. The scallops were part of a three course meal, which was perfect. The server was highly attentive and nice. No attitude here. We'll be back!"

"The gnocchi appetizer was perfect and the striped bass entree was totally delicious. Hands down, this is the best restaurant in the western Boston suburbs. Oh, and the banana profiteroles dessert contained the best banana gelato one could eat!"
