The Company - Farmington, ME

A new restaurant has opened in downtown Farmington. Called "The Company," it specializes in seasonal offerings and extensive beer selections. The tap list numbers 24. I went in for some appetizers and a flight of beers. The flight was a great deal---$8 for five small glasses of beer (forget the exact size). For beer lovers, it's hard to imagine beating this place. I did not have dinner, so won't comment extensively on the food...but the apps we had were pretty good: a nice bruschetta and seafood crepes.

Wine list is also significantly better than almost any place in the area. Not surprising, since the resto is owned by the same folks as Ron's Market.

One thing to point out: the ambiance/interior design is really terrible. It's basically an empty room with no decor into which a dozen wooden tables have been dropped. The only decor to speak of, for some reason, were some Godfather and Goodfellas movie poster leaning against he walls. Wierd. They need to work on this. more amusing note. Everything on the printed menu was misspelled. Crapes, muscles, burchetta, escargo.....we had a great laugh about this. Please folks, invest in a spell checker.
