The 7 Hottest Restaurants in Maine Right Now

This small bistro on Great Diamond Island provides an island escape with its tropical decor and neon flamingo. The menu, designed by vegan chef Rocky Hunter, features seafood dishes like grilled oysters, New England shrimp toast, and shrimp ceviche. The carrot “lox” and bowl of fried Brussel sprouts show the chef knows how to treat vegetables, while the burger and bacon skewers show he’s not afraid of meat either. Crown Jewel closes after Columbus Day, so scope that ferry schedule soon.
