Beermeister and entrepreneur Sam Calagione has transformed the old Finbar’s location into a brand new concept to be part of his highly anticipated Dogfish Head complex there in the 4th block of Rehoboth Avenue. Chesapeake & Maine will open on March 7, 2016. The seafood joint is inspired by Sam’s summers spent in Dogfish Head, Maine and Dogfish’s connection to the Chesapeake region!
The menu will consist of sustainably sourced seafood from Maine and the Chesapeake Bay with a unique take on classic New England dishes such as Maine lobster bolognese and a seafood charcuterie. With an inviting and casual maritime theme, the restaurant will feature porthole windows and oyster shell chandeliers. As usual, the Foodie will keep you posted.
Menu highlights also include a seafood take on classic dishes such as the Seacuterie, comprised of crab cake scotch eggs, lobster sausage, smoked bluefish rillettes, scallop chip and pickled seabeans, lobster poutine served with fries and cheese curds, and the cornmeal crusted B\bluenose catfish served with sweet creamed corn succotash, crispy hushpuppies and ancho chili remoulade.
