Cape Arundel Inn ~ A Kennebunkport Restaurant Review
It has been nearly a year since I last reviewed The Cape Arundel Inn, located across from Walker's Point in Kennebunkport.
In my last review my intent was to share with my readers just how wonderful this unique restaurant truly is.
The Cape Arundel Inn is our special spot for the occasional celebration or, when we want to show off Kennebunkport to special friends.
Last night it was the former, Janice and I celebrated our 24th anniversary. Time flies!
We began the evening the way we always suggest our guests begin their experience at The Cape Arundel Inn. We arrived early so we could enjoy a drink on their incredible front porch. The evening was perfect and so was the weather. We both enjoyed a rum punch and a view that can't be beat.
We were escorted to the best seat in the house (actually, all their seats are excellent). For our First Plate (formerly known as hors d'oeuvres) Janice had the special bisque, Butternut Squash with chunks of Lobster. Janice describes the bisque as fresh and flavorful. It was a great choice. For me, it was the Broiled Maine Crabcakes in a crisp Panko Crust with Spring Vegetable Slaw and Sweet Chili Sesame Remoulade. Now, there are a couple of words in the description of this dish that I don't even understand but, the crabcakes were delicious. So many different and wonderful flavors.
My entree was the Lazy Lobster. It was simply the best, better than all the rest. It really was unbelievable and there was just the right amount. The vegetables that were included were excellent but they were clearly overshadowed by the outstanding lobster.
And for dessert...yes, this time we had dessert. For Janice it was Gingered Strawberries over a warm buttermilk biscuit topped with whipped cream. A great improvement to Strawberry Shortcake.
I had the Warmed Peaches on Ginger Bread with French Vanilla Gelato and Macadamia Nuts.
And finally, I never under estimate the the importance of a good cup of coffee. In this case it was an outstanding cup of coffee.
An incomparable location, outstanding cuisine and service that is second to none. Is it any wonder that this is our special spot?
Stay at The Maine Stay Inn and dine at The Cape Arundel Inn, what a great combination.
