Best Thin-Crust Pizza

GRISSINI TRATTORIA, Kennebunk

The crispy pies emerging from the wood-burning ovens here deliver big flavors without gobs of cheese. They’re delicate yet bold, familiar yet creative. The pancetta is topped with tomato sauce, smoked bacon, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, and goat cheese. 27 Western Ave. 207-967-2211; restaurantgrissini.com

Best Vegetarian Dining

GREEN ELEPHANT, Portland

There’s barely a shred of real meat or cheese on the Asian-inspired menu, but with the wild and intriguing infusion of flavors, you shouldn’t miss them. Begin with the green-leaves wrap with mango, herbs, and tamarind dipping sauce, or perhaps the king-oyster mushroom tempura; then move on to pineapple brown rice, a watercress veggie-duck, or “Siamese Dream” curry noodle. 608 Congress St. 207-347-3111; greenelephantmaine.com

Best Taste of Europe

MORSE’S ‘KRAUT HAUS, North Waldoboro

What began in 1918 as a business selling farm-fresh sauerkraut has morphed into a cafe serving Old World favorites and comfort foods (such as pierogi, sauerbraten, borscht, and blintzes), plus a market jam-packed with hard-to-find European meats, cheeses, and specialty foods, local artisanal breads, and Morse’s own products. 3856 Washington Road (Route 220). 866-832-5569, 207-832-5569; morsessauerkraut.com

Best Feel-Good Chocolate

SAFE HARBOR CONFECTIONS, Waldoboro

The company donates 5 percent of gross income to animal-welfare causes. Its raspberry- and wild-blueberry-filled chocolates, salt caramels, and other flavors are found in stores statewide. 207-832-6026; safeharborconfections.com
