Sea Bright in Camden, Maine. Or is it Seabright?
Had a few pizzas the other night at chef Brian Hill's new spot. Simply the best pizza I've had around these parts. Inventive toppings (mushroom puree, cauliflower, home-made mozz!)...perfectly done crust, with just the right amount of char. It's loud for sure...hard to talk to your tablemates. I would like a greater selection of wines...having only one Chianti but three Lambruscos (and I'm a dry Lambrusco fan) is a bit puzzling. I also prefer my salad to come dressed, rather than doing it old school with wine and vinegar on the table, but that's a minor quibble. All in all, excellent!
I'm thrilled to have great pizza in the area and am really looking forward to checking Seabright out. Brian has a great knack for knowing exactly what the midcoast needs in a restaurant, but what is it with the sound in his places? I can't hear my tablemates well in his other restaurants either. I love the food and atmosphere, but I sometimes opt to go elsewhere purely because I'm hoping to have good conversation with my dinner partners.
Thanks for the report, it's definitely on the list. I'm still partial to the pizzas at In Good Company and Primo...but the former doesn't always have it on the menu and the latter is closed for 5 months out of the year!
Totally agree with the above complaints about sound levels in Brian's restaurants - great food (update at SP perhaps?) but obnoxious sound levels. Seabright has great pizza but what's with the cavelike dark at the back?
