MC Perkins Cove Restaurant Review

: Chefs Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier are best known for their more upscale Arrows Restaurant a few miles away. But MC Perkins Cove gives you the style and pizzazz of their Asia-meets-Maine cuisine at a much lower price. Large picture windows showcase the crashing surf in the cove while the menu pays attention to the seasons, with all vegetables coming from nearby gardens. Seafood is the house specialty with a raw bar that includes a "tower" of tuna sashimi and lobster. Start with “Strange Flavored” eggplant purée with Chinese long bean tempura, or spicy pork lettuce cups with crispy shallots, Asian herbs and a clear dipping sauce. Move on to linguine with clams, pancetta and parsley, or the plank roasted fish of the day with herbs. Go à la carte with steaks served with "Evil Carbos" like cheddar cheese beignets. Desserts are creative as well, with highlights including a trio of cupcakes and a chocolate brownie with house-made marshmallow and coffee ice cream. The wine list includes domestic whites to pair with the seafood along with rich red selections for the steaks.
