Rumford residents Nick Rabar and wife Tracy have a hit on their hands with AVENUE N AMERICAN KITCHEN, located in the revamped Rumford Center (former home to the famous baking powder). Nick is a familiar name around these parts, the renowned chef/entrepreneur/author and host of his own show on Cox, Nick Rabar Chef 2 Go. Bring some friends to Avenue N, for there are far too many apps to tempt the palate, like plump fried oysters, lamb sliders, and the Rabars\' gastropub spin on a childhood classic — hand-battered corn dogs with mac & cheese. Stellar entrees include swordfish with whole wheat spaetzle and a fork-tender, molasses-brined bone-in pork chop. As for Sunday brunch, we\'re talking the best steak and eggs around, and Avenue N\'s signature burger (topped with an optional fried egg) is untouchable. Full bar (including Allagash on tap) with signature cocktails, too.
