Sunday Brunch*

"Bear in mind that you should conduct yourself in life as at a feast."

"I view brunch as an opportunity for myself and the guests to explore new items and areas of the culinary. I change the menu every week, trying new preparations, using interesting local products. My goal is simple: to create unique culinary dishes with flavors, tastes and smells that are remembered long after the event has passed." 
— Chef Elizabeth DiFranco

Lobster Sunday Brunch Menu

(Served 11:45 AM until 2 PM)

There are few opportunities to explore Asian Food but this week we are doing so.  I mean from everywhere; Japan, Korea, Thailand, Macau, the Philippines and China.  All of the methods, all of the nuances are challenging and fascinating.  It is our job this week to translate massive amounts of techniques and materials into a joyful, flowing, cohesive presentation.

One of our most popular hors d’oeuvres are Korean barbecued chicken wings, so delicious yet appearing so simple.  A beautiful way to start this menu is to engage the guest in the wonders of an Asian-Chinese Spice Street Market featuring Sushi, Fresh Rolls and many tempting side dishes. Yes, we are even trying to find a dragon.  This is the fourth week of a new way of looking at salads.  It is successful beyond our wildest expectations.

A light soup will feature a special broth with Kombu, chicken and wild mushrooms.  Certainly this compliments our deep-fried golden cauliflower tempura, just so enjoyable and fragile.

Center Stage is crispy Pork Cutlet Tonkatsu with a new amazing sauce that includes apples and tomatoes with Macau inspired lobster fried rice.

In our world of ever-changing egg dishes is this one inspired by Japanese “Oyakodon” to include Chef-made noodles, Swiss chard, Zucchini, peppers, tomatoes and crispy slab bacon in a fluffy frittata.

This is a perfect finish to September.  What a month this has been for we are still receiving and celebrating the bounty of Maine!  Thank you!
