Ocean in Kennebunkport - So Worth a Visit

It's fantastic!!! We went Friday. First off, the restaurant at the Cape Arundel Inn, has undergone a much needed face lift and it is stunning. The views are all around, too. They opened up all the walls and it's mostly window. The chef is Pierre from 98 Provence and his food is outstanding. This was easily the best meal we've had since we started visiting the area. My husband had the seared foie gras to start and we both had the rack of lamb. The lamb was perfect and served with green olive tapenade, fava beans and a tarragon vinegar sauce. The sauce was the perfect amount of tarragon, which can be overpowering, but his was wonderful. It was supposed to come with a zucchini blossom but instead came with a fried artichoke which was light and lovely. For dessert I had the chocolate truffle - just needed a little bite of something sweet. We won't be back in the area till next year, but Ocean will be at the top of our list.
