Blue Hill, Maine (and environs)

Okay, I had come to accept that both Pie-in-the-Sky and Jonathon's are long gone. Jean-Paul's Bistro is also no more. But there must be something new and recommended in this once-restaurant-rich area?

    Clionice, on Main Street in Ellsworth is my favorite better dining spot in the region. Good for lunch or dinner featuring and assortment of Meditereanean tapas and entrees. There is also a very good ,but not particularly attractive, pizza place in Ellsworth on Rt 3 just 100 yds east of the rt 3- rt 1 split. (The name escapes me at the moment.)

      Thank you, vbmontana...the pizza place (whose name also escapes me, but I can see the very modest, ex-garage premises in my mind's eye) is a favourite of ours...if you have not been to The Mexx, also on the main street of Ellesworth, it is also very good esp. if you avoid the trite-and-true burritos etc. and go for the mole and huevos ranchero type stuff-but I will check out Clionice-I am amazed that I only got one response-this is such a beautiful vacation spot...we can't be the only two folks/families that eat when we go there!

        I strongly agree about Cleonice! I like the tapas best, and you can get a great selection for not too much money. The lamb burger (maybe only for lunch?) is fantastic. One of my favorite restaurants anywhere!
