We love Maine. Love, love, love. There’s a lot that makes Maine special—moose, dramatic coastline vistas, L.L. Bean—but the state is perhaps most famous for lobster. From traditional steamed lobster to lobster rolls, people flock to the state for a taste of this snappy little crustacean.
But Maine cuisine is about more than just lobster. The Inn at English Meadows puts guests in the heart of Kennebunkport, home to several enticing restaurants (not to mention the Bush family compound). Here are three fine dining establishments we think are worth trying on your visit.
White Barn Inn – One of the most celebrated restaurants in New England, this restaurant, situated in two meticulously restored barns, is a splurge to remember. The prix-fixe menu changes with the seasons, but is full of clever preparations and New England flavor.
Old Vines Wine Bar and Tapas – Old Vines brings a hint of Spain to Maine. Small plates like Broiled Maine Shrimp and Chorizo are accompanied by an extensive wine list.
On the Marsh – Set in an historic home with views of the adjacent tidal marsh, On the Marsh is a romantic destination with an exquisite menu that changes regularly.
