Fodor's 2000 / Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire

Jazz, unmatched tables and chairs, and a few couches provide a relaxing background for the creative, internationally inspired menu at this restaurant tucked in a back street in Bar Harbor. You might begin with crab cakes with tequila-lime sauce and then move on to cashew-crusted chicken over sautéed greens with sesame-ginger aioli or perhaps butternut squash ravioli with roasted red peppers, broccoli, and a rosemary maple cream sauce. Save room for the homemade desserts.
