Sustainable & Delectable
Sea Glass Restaurant at Inn by the Sea offers an unsurpassed Maine dining experience at our Cape Elizabeth Restaurant with spectacular ocean views from its intimate oceanfront dining room or al fresco deck, just ten minutes from Portland Maine. Chef Andrew Chadwick marries the freshest local ingredients with a focus on health and taste to create "intelligent" cuisine that offers both flavor and nutrition on seasonally changing menus.
Alongside local produce from nearby Portland Maine farms and his signature Lobster Tacos, Chef Chadwick's day boat catch and evening menus feature underutilized seafood fresh from Maine’s coastal waters.
The Chef, working with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, identifies abundant and delectable fish from the Gulf of Maine that are under-appreciated. The culinary team pairs sustainable seafood with fresh produce, meat, and poultry from local farms whenever possible in a true celebration of Maine fare at our Cape Elizabeth Restaurant.
Serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch, Sea Glass Restaurant in Cape Elizabeth is open year-round and welcomes both hotel and public guests to enjoy oceanfront dining inside the intimate restaurant, or, in warm weather on the seaside decks. Larger parties are invited to reserve the Cove Room, our Private Dining Room for parties of nine to twenty.
The Cove Room offers a seasonally changing Chef's Tasting Menu. Reservations for the Cove Room may be made at 207.799.3134.
Vegan dishes just got trendy in Sea Glass, our Cape Elizabeth restaurant! According to Vegan Food and Living, Google Searches for plant based diets have taken over the top search spot, leaving 'gluten free' behind, and last year Google Trends saw a 90% increase in 'vegan' searches. In Sea Glass, Chef Chadwick celebrates healthy and ethical eating with vegan menus even loyal carnivores love.
"The appeal of vegan menu options has grown well beyond the traditional guest who avoided meat for ethical or environmental reasons to include much broader interests in healthy lifestyle trends," said Chadwick. "We are combining fresh plant based ingredients, whole foods and a variety of vegetable pastas, grains and globally inspired sauces. Vegan menus are now fresh, inventive, packed with surprising flavors and great for one's health"
