When it comes to popular Portland pubs, you'll find a lot of love for both Samuel's and Tomaso's Canteen. There's a twisted web of ownership amongst the two pubs, and that web will get a little larger when Legend's Rest Taproom opens in Westbrook next year.

According to Portland Food Map, Legend's will open in a newly renovated part of Main Street in downtown Westbrook. It'll open near the new location of Veranda Thai (672 Main Street) as well as a new business venture called Quill Books and Beverage. The space at 855 Main Street is still currently under development and there is no firm timetable for the opening of Legend's.

Legend's will have an intriguing menu item though. The plan is to served "smashed" burgers, a concept gaining traction in the foodie community. Smashed burgers maximize the crust from cooking on the meat. Crusty goodness typically equates to flavorful goodness. They're also planning on having a rotating selection of craft beers, likely to include some of Westbrook's new breweries.
