Maine Restaurant Week 2014

March 6th, 2014 by Judi Hauer

Maine Restaurant Week is one of my favorite times of year in Kennebunkport, and it is finally back again!  Not only is it a wonderful way to test out new restaurants or enjoy different options at some old favorites, but it’s also an excuse to order more than you normally would and enjoy leftovers for #Maine Restaurant Week´s Kickoff Signature Event is tonight in Portland!lunch!  And again this year, quite a few restaurants in Kennebunkport and the surrounding area are participating in 2014.  But unlike other restaurant weeks throughout the country, the entire state is participating, so no matter whether you stay nearby or go day tripping, you’ll have tons of great options!  As usual, Maine Restaurant Week is held from March 1 to 10, and that gives you plenty of time to indulge in loads of amazing meals.  And one of the best things about Restaurant Week is the three course prix fixe menus that get rolled out, so for $25, $35, $45 (and one for $55), you can enjoy a carefully crafted meal that is great for the wallet.  Plus, with many of the restaurants serving lunch, you can get a steal of a meal for just $15.

But whatever your reasons are for indulging in an evening of dining out, Maine Restaurant Week (until March 10) is sure to satisfy all of them!  And with our Third Night Free Special in full swing, visiting during this great culinary event means that you can enjoy a relaxing getaway that is perfect for your budget, without sacrificing any of the luxury you expect from Kennebunkport and the Maine Stay Inn. So don’t miss out on your chance to try any of the amazing participating restaurants during this year’s Maine Restaurant Week.

Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week is Coming!

We're welcoming Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week to town!

We’re welcoming Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week to town!

For the first time ever, the incredible restaurants of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are teaming up to present the Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week, starting this Sunday, September 22, 2013 until the 28th!  While we absolutely love Maine Restaurant Week (and any excuse to try fun new spots), we’re stoked that nearly all of the area restaurants are participating in this inaugural event.  So not only is fall foliage season upon us, but the restaurants are also showing us their true “colors” by whipping up a three course meal for participants this week.  Each restaurant chooses their price point (either $25, $35, or $45), and plans a special menu accordingly.  And how could you ask for more?  I mean most entrees would normally put you darn close to those prices, so how could you possibly turn down a full three courses for such stellar deals?  I certainly know that I couldn’t!  So this week, I better hit the streets and beaches with my running shoes, because I think there’s going to be some hearty eating going on! Fortunately, though, lots of the participating restaurants are within comfortable walking distance from the Maine Stay Inn, so that means I’ve got just one more excuse to dig into dessert this week.  But whether you choose to enjoy the full three courses or opt to select a la carte from each of the Kennebunkport restaurants regular menus, there’s no way to go wrong.  And since so many restaurants are choosing to participate in the first ever Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week, you’ve got countless options for enjoying some stellar eats at superb prices.  This new event is sure to be a hit, and in anticipation, they’ve set up a great website with information on the participating restaurants and the head chef in each location.  But all of us at the Maine Stay are happy to help make recommendations based on your personal preferences and reserve a table at the restaurant of your choice.  So don’t miss out on Greater Kennebunks Restaurant Week starting this Sunday, September 22!
