For the Boston baked beans, that is a dish that won't commonly be found on a restaurant menu nowadays. I'm not sure you'll find it easily in Maine.

I'm thinking maybe someplace like Durgin Park in Boston might have it because it is near the Freedom Trail and lots of Colonial era history, which draws visitors looking for that. If you're in the area, I would Google the menu and look.

Eventide Oyster was serving baked beans as a side the night we were there, and they were excellent, but I don't see them on the menu so give them a call. Blueberry happened to be the "pie of the day", also.

As you are likely aware, blueberries aren't in season right now, so any pie will have been made with frozen. Hard to say in that case where the source may have been.

Lobster is EVERYWHERE!!!!! But baked beans? Hmmmm. Not so much.

You realize that there's a major baked beans cannery in Portland - B&M Baked Beans. But that doesn't seem to translate into restaurant availability. If you'd like a can to take home, any supermarket can accommodate you.

While I am not sure about the cracked lobster part, baked beans are definitely on the menu at the Maine Diner in Wells as both a side dish and a menu item:


They also have pies, which vary each day. You could always call ahead.
