As a restaurant that pays tribute to the beauty and the bounty of coastal Maine, Kennebunkport’s Earth delivers in both style and taste. General Manager and Mixologist Danielle Walker and Chef Justin Walker, previously chef de cuisine of nearby Arrows in Ogunquit, Maine, have thrown themselves wholeheartedly into this new venture, serving up creative drinks and stunning dishes that are at once highly refined and completely unpretentious. His house-pulled burrata, made with local curds and paired wonderfully with bright pickled fruit and bitter greens, makes simple food divine. His Bluefin Poke with Dashi, Radishes, and Pickled Mushrooms demonstrates how a delicate touch can bring together many disparate elements to create a dish greater than the sum of its parts. Cobalt walls, a rough stone fireplace, and a light-draped apple tree hanging inverted from the barn-height ceiling of the dining room make for a stylish country setting.
