On our family trip to Maine in August 2010, we rented a cabin in the Blue Hill area and had a great time exploring the more remote parts of the beautiful peninsula. By far, the highlight of the food we tried was at Table, A Farmhouse Bistro. We had an absolutely fantastic meal there, but upon searching for a link for this restaurant, I have discovered that it has sadly closed.
I cannot explain how sad this makes me, as Table was fantastic for food, aesthetics, and service.
I absolutely loved the interior, and I hope the restaurant that replaced it has maintained the beauty of this rustic yet updated design.
Here was the menu:
And some of our food…
We even tried a bottle of wild blueberry wine, which was surprisingly very good
But it was really the lobster risotto and lobster mac and cheese that were fan-freakin-tastic. Over-flowing with big hunks of lobster and great flavors across the board.
What a shame that this place has closed!
A few months after going to Maine and blogging about all our Nomming adventures, my father and sister decided to take a trip back to our favorite state. I was between two jobs so, at the last minute, I joined them. This was nearly 2 years ago, and these drafted posts have sat in my Drafts folder since then. At first I was avoiding posting so much about Maine back-to-back, and then time just got in the way. I cannot believe these are back from August 2010!
We are embarking on another trip to Maine this weekend, so I figured it was time to update!
First things first… if you are going to Maine, find yourself a roadside stand advertising “Fresh Maine Blueberries” and make sure you stop. We wound up buying huge containers of these and munching on them throughout all our trips, including on our way home.
They are smaller than grocery store blueberries, and packed with more flavor and bit of extra sweetness.
There ain’t nothing like them!
And if they happen to be selling some jarred wild blueberry jam, I recommend you don’t pass that up either!
