Maine Restaurant Week is just around the corner and we have some special events planned in addition to the tasting menu we’ll be offering during Restaurant Week, March 1-10.
On Wednesday March 5, we will host a wine dinner featuring SoPo Wines with Joe Ricchio at Natalie’s. Joe currently manages the sake bar at Miyake Diner in Portland and is the Food Editor for Maine Magazine. He is an established food writer and has been published in the London Guardian, Bon Appetit, and Vice.
Friday March 7 and Saturday March 8 you can join us for a Champagne Ice Bar and two very special cocktail dinners with guest mixologist Greg Bell, who is a bartender at the Michelin Star gastropub The Spotted Pig in NYC. He studied the craft of cocktail making under one of this century’s best bartenders, Sasha Petraske.
Greg Bell will join Natalie’s mixologist Seth Knowlton for a Master Class in Cocktail Making on Saturday March 8, from 2-4pm. The $15 registration fee includes tastings of different cocktails, liquors, spirits discussed during the Master Class. Call us to reserve your spot.
Finally, our mixologist Seth Knowlton and Pastry Chef Jason Sturdivant will be participating in the cocktail and dessert competitions at Maine Restaurant Week’s Signature Event in Portland on Sunday March 9. Tickets to this event are available online and sell out each year. We have won the title of Best Cocktail twice and have been ranked at the top every other year.
And, of course, you can view our Restaurant Week menu here. We will be offering a five-course gourmet tasting menu for $55.
