As Maine Restaurant week kicked off, I had the pleasure of going to the Crave event at Coffee By Design.

I heard that they had chocolate cocktails and was eager to try them, but sadly the chocolate martini did not make it this year. However other items did for sure.

Items like Chocolate Coconut truffles, Blood Organd Infused Expresso, Pork Belly with a coffee-flavored sauce, made my heart feel zesty just thinking about them.

As you can see from the photos and the menu, these restaurant and bakery owners did NOT come to play games with our tastebuds or wallets, because they know we will be frequenting their businesses for sure!

Restaurant Week (which is really two weeks but who is counting) seems like an awesome event in place such great places to eat.

Will you be attending this year?
