Inspired Cuisine

Chef John Shaw’s “classic Maine” menu honors his coastal roots by emphasizing New England flavors and fresh Maine seafood, enhanced by the Asian influences he gained during his frequent travels to the Philippines. Our one-of-a-kind cuisine has a refined flair, such as lobster fried rice, pan-seared halibut, and Maine blueberry crisp.
