Mother’s day is the next big thing here at The Good Table, we love our Moms. Anyone who knows us knows our matriarch Sylvia, while she only has 2 biological children she has mothered many, many more. A lot of the crew here look to her for mother love. She’s really good at it. So Mother’s day has always been a favorite of ours. The reservation book is open, we have reserved only half of the dining room leaving the rest open for walk in business. I won’t lie, it’ll be busy, but our crew is top notch and we will be well prepared and things should run smooth as butter. If you need to wait for a table we’ll have coffee on the front porch for you. Per usual all Moms will get a beautiful rose and a big love.
Finally. It’s here. We took a nice end of winter break in mid March, we are rested and rejuvenated and excited to bring new flavors to the house. Spring dug parsnips arrive tomorrow, asparagus abounds, spring cocktails are here. Hello spring. Soon we’ll be at the market picking up plants and herbs for the gardens. Greens, ramps, rhubarb, radishes and fiddleheads will follow. Hello spring. We start dreaming of summer strawberries, corn, tomatoes, it is the start of a glorious time of year to cook in Maine.
The war in Ukraine breaks our hearts. The need to help in some way inspired us to raise money through sales of goods from The Sweets Department, your personal donations, a 10% charity day and The GT’s matching funds we raised $2,390. I am never more proud to be a small business owner then I am at times like this, when we along with your giving can help. Thank you. The money will be split evenly between Save the Children, Unicef and World Central Kitchen.
Easter is coming up hot. We will be open from 8:00 am until
2:00 pm. We will serve Breakfast and Brunch all day. We will forgo the lunch and diner menu and stick to brunchy foods. Sorry, no ham, no lamb, but we’ll have plenty of Cinnamon Buns, Creme Brûlée French Toast and Blood Orange Mimosas. The reservation book is open on April 1st, we are taking reservations for half the dining room with plenty of room for walk in guests. There will be coffee on the porch waiting for you.
We’ve stopped offering Take and Bake Family Meals with the end of winter. The Sweets Department though is still offering all sorts of goodies to take and bake in your own oven. Check our weekly menus for offerings.
Enjoy the beginnings of the green life. Come visit and taste the season in our menus. Happy Spring Maine.
