While this week was notable for lots of things in Kennebunkport, the reopening of Bandaloop Restaurant topped the charts of many locals and visitors alike. Last night marked the restaurant’s reopening after a nearly eight week long hiatus, and with temps
well into the seventies when its signature red doors opened at 5, it felt more like summer than the start of spring! Despite the fact that no one at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast has given its new menu a test run yet, three couples decided to head over. And guess what? There were six glowing reviews this morning around the breakfast table! Now while that’s not really a surprise, it is always nice to hear that nothing’s been forgotten after a long vacation. But because we always test out the restaurants in Kennebunkport and the surrounding towns (just to make sure that we are appropriately guiding our guests to place that suit them best), I am now looking forward to my first spring dinner at Bandaloop even more than ever. However, since we just dove headlong into a living room renovation project, this meal might just have to wait a few more weeks. Don’t worry, though, this project is being done in stages to avoid disruption of the guest experience. Yes, we’re all very excited about to have them serving again, but selfishly, I am glad to have another great option for gluten-free dining close by. Even more important, though, is the fact that the reopening of Bandaloop is a big milestone in terms of restaurant availability in Kennebunkport, because now over 75% of eateries in town are open. Now, not all are operating at their height of summer hours, so be sure to check with innkeeper or staff at our Kennebunkport Bed and Breakfast just to be safe!
