This instant institution has been open along Highway One since 1983. The low-slung white building with a blue awning flies a series of flags along the roof, including the U.S., Canada, and of course Maine. The Henry family has constructed a sprawling menu over the years, with Yankee comfort food like lobster pie, seafood chowder, and thin sliced London broil. For dessert, the restaurant serves a regional classic, Indian pudding, which combines corn meal with molasses, cream, butter, brown sugar, ginger, and cinnamon.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
