Restaurants in New England with Good Popovers?

(From Our Questions and Answers Feature)

What New England restaurants are known for their popovers? A few that come to mind are the Continental in Saugus, MA, Passports in Gloucester, MA, and the Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park, ME. Any other places in the region? [Go here to post a reply.]

Judie's Restaurant, in Amherst, MA has good ones, but nothing will ever come close to the glorious popovers served on the lawn at Jordan Pond Tea House in Acadia Park, Bar Harbor, Maine.

Anthony's Pier 4 is the famous one, but I've also had good ones at Clover Food Lab (made fresh in the mornings), Ula's Cafe in JP, and Ecco in Eastie (it's what they use for their lobster roll). They also have them at The Continental in Saugus, but I haven't made it up there yet.

The Fireside Grill in Middleboro, MA. That place and Dave's Diner down the street (owned by the same people) are pretty much the only reasons to ever go to Middleboro.
