THE NOREASTER ON NORTH STREET IN DOVER HAS ONLY BEEN OPEN SINCE 2004, BUT IT SITS ON THE SAME SITE AS COLLETTE’S RESTAURANT, AND HAS QUICKLY EARNED THE ESTEEM THAT ITS PREDECESSOR SHARED YEARS AGO…
":no, I didn’t make meat loaf today, Hon, sorry. I’m just asking–I just wanted to put that out there, just in case. So you like that the other night I do!":
CANDI AND CLARK LOMBARDE (LUM-BEARED) HAVE BEEN COMING HERE SINCE IT OPENED….
":you usually see the same people everyday…we get here right at 11 o’clock, when they open, because they fill up, you can’t get a seat—it fills up very quickly.":
":we have yet to have dessert, I think, as long as we’ve been coming here, cause you don’t need it…you’re full by the time you get done.":
OWNER, SETH OSTROSKY, GRADUATED FROM FOXCROFT ACADEMY….
":having enough local business keeps us going, and when the tourists are in town, and they ask where to go, we get reccommended.":
MAUREEN TREFETHEN SAYS THE NOREASTER IS KNOWN ALMOST AS WELL FOR IT’S REGULARS AS IT IS FOR ITS CLAM CHOWDER…
":I guess we’re as loyal to them as they are to us, and we watch out for them…we look forward to seeing them every day.":
HOURS AWAY FROM DOVER, ON A LONEY STRETCH OF ROUTE 9 IN BAILEYVILLE, SITS MAINE’S *BEST KEPT SECRET*, THE NOOK AND CRANNY….
":its not that fancy outside, so you might be inclined to go right through and try and find something in town…but this is great..and we come from in town to come out here.":
":its nice to know I can go somewhere to eat, where they can cook better than I can..and its always made with real food, its fresh veggies, its not out of a can, its not frozen, and everything’s made from scratch.":
FAMILY OWNED, THE NOOK FEATURES A MENU FROM AROUND THE WORLD…THANKS TO CHEF STEVE CLARK…..
":I have a lot of diversity in different cultural foods and what not, so its nice that I can bring that to other people to let them see the diversity in the world through different foods.":
":the restaurant is both fancy and family friendly…you can come here and have a really good meal with some important people in your life.":
":I can put my elbows on the table and be right at home here…I’m gonna put you in a corner when we get home.":
":its a little jewel in the rough out here.":
