Opentable.com Lists Three Maine Restaurants As America’s Most Romantic
Can you feel the loveeeeeeeeeee tonight!?
Looking for a romantic atmosphere to stuff your face with your sweetheart, shmoopie, hubby, bae, boo-boo-bear, honey bun, ball and chain or person you're stuck with this Valentines Day? You're in luck! OpenTable.com says three of 100 of the most romantic restaurants in the country are here in Maine!
First Maine eatery on the list was Ocean in Kennebunkport. OpenTable.com said: 'The Innkeepers have filled the building with a striking art collection that could make small New England museums envious, while Chef Gignac uses the dining room—with its awe-inspiring views—as a canvas upon which to create epicurean masterpieces.'
Another Kennebunkport nom nom factory making the cut was On The Marsh Bistro. 'On the Marsh Bistro resides in a converted barn and farmhouse circa 1800 on 3 acres of plantings alongside a tidal salt marsh. Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, James Beard Presenter 2011, NECN Platinum Plate, Voted Most Romantic and one of the top ten restaurants in Maine. Great for European style Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners and Corporate Meetings. For the Adventuresome, try the table in the kitchen: bright lights, dirty dishes passing by and a peek behind the scenes of culinary skills at its best. Or try The Owner's Table where Exec. Chef Jeffrey A. Savage will create a menu especially for you paired with Wine.'
Apparently Kennebunkport is a hot (and heavy) bed for romance. The final Maine restaurant on the list is, drum roll please, IN KENNEBUNKPORT! OpenTable.com said of White Barn Inn: 'Fine American cuisine served in a fabulously converted barn. The White Barn Inn Restaurant is a AAA Five Diamond, Forbes Five Star and Relais Gourmand property with four course Prix Fixe Menu at $109 per person, and subject to availability, a nine course Prix Fixe menu at $165 per person, both featuring the finest fresh local ingredients.'
Thanks for the love OpenTable, but have you ever heard of Portland or Bangor? There's another five hours of interstate guiding you to more romantic destinations!
