A Distinguished Dining Experience in Maine
Slate Restaurant is one of only two Relais & Châteaux Restaurants in Maine. The renowned, gourmet restaurant serves a tasty farm-to-table menu inspired by seasonally available ingredients from our garden or one of our many local farms. Our handsome wood-paneled cocktail lounge offers fine wines, custom seasonal cocktails and mocktails, and small bites.
Located at the Blair Hill Inn and overlooking Maine’s largest glacier lake, Slate Restaurant sits commandingly atop a 20′ high, 900′ long fieldstone wall. Its hillside perch provides one of the most beautiful, expansive lake views in the world. Once a gentleman’s estate and breeding farm built in 1891, it is now a finely restored boutique hotel & restaurant with exquisite décor and exceptional service.
The summer multi-course tasting menus begin each spring when seeds are planted in our greenhouse and gardens. When cuisine is driven by what’s ripe from the gardens or from local farms and is artfully homemade, each course becomes pure pleasure.
Our winter a la carte menu offers guests the freshest ingredients prepared with unique flavor combinations that are sure to delight.
Inspired by the seasons, our tasting menus offer fresh, local ingredients in unique flavor combinations.
From scotch tasting and wine pairing to celebrating the holidays, we always have something exciting planned.
Dining at Slate Restaurant is special. The cocktail lounge, fireplaces, and a huge porch where you can sit with your beverage and watch the sun set over the mountains and lake await you. Our staff is sincere and professional. The ambiance – haut country, has no snobbishness, just a mastery of fine service and warmth.
