Josh Berry

Union, Portland, ME

Don’t call it the “other Portland”: this seaside city is home to a food scene that’s creative, fueled by local farms, and totally pilgrimage-worthy. To wit: Maine native Josh Berry and his hip restaurant, Union, which attracts visitors and locals alike to the popular Press Hotel.
