The Inn by the Sea, Green in Maine
The Inn by the Sea on the Maine coast is Maine's first hotel heated by biofuel and the first in the state to be carbon neutral. The hotel also has five acres of indigenous gardens certified as a Wildlife Habitat. They also offer green weddings and green meetings. Now the eco-friendly inn is bringing green to the tale with the new restaurant Sea Glass which opens in June 2008. They have hired executive chef, Mitchell Kaldrovich to create a restaurant that will focus on the freshest fare from local and seasonal ingredients. The changing menu will incorporate dishes with regionally raised beef, pork, lamb and seasonal game as well as organic chicken, a variety of handmade pastas and vegetarian dishes and seafood fresh from the ocean. Kaldrovich was most recently the executive chef of the Plump Jack café in Squaw Valley, California. To celebrate the new restaurant they are offering a bed and breakfast package that start in June and includes breakfast for two in the Sea Glass restaurant. Garden suites are $331 per night, spa suites are $370.
