The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Hit the Coast in Cape Elizabeth


2. Where to Eat

The Lobster Shack's picnic tables sit on prime oceanfront real estate.   

Taste Maine-style dishes prepared with Spanish flair and local ingredients at Sea Glass. Chef Mitchell Kaldrovich pairs roasted mussels with sofrito ($11) and serves paella made with chorizo and fresh grilled lobster tail ($27) in a dark wood dining room overlooking Inn by the Sea’s front lawn. If you’re there on a Wednesday, call for a space at the weekly outdoor farm-to-table dinner ($70), where underused Gulf of Maine fish, like hake, are served.

Sit seaside at the Lobster Shack at Two Lights, a classic eatery that’s been serving fresh lobster rolls (market price) since the twenties. Today, clams, haddock, shrimp, and scallops ($3.50 to $18.99 depending on type of dish) pulled from the gulf are also served and enjoyed at picnic tables perched on the shore of Cacso Bay.

Dine on the front porch of a cozy, two-story house at the Good Table, a family-owned establishment that serves Greek recipes with a local twist. Choose from weekly specials, like Greek Island–style mussels with feta and fresh basil (market price), or among mainstays like the farmer’s market omelet ($6.50) or traditional Greek plaki made with scallops or haddock (market price).
