A Restaurant in Belfast, Maine

Today, with a combination of pride and appreciation, I am officially announcing the closure of Ondine. I opened Ondine Oyster + Wine Bar because I believed it was a good fit for Belfast, an inspiring community with an iconic coastal Maine setting that had resisted the trappings of commerce and development. I am extremely grateful to the core staff and year-round clientele, as well as the array of farmers and market vendors who supplied such incredible ingredients. I look forward to spending more time with my family, and returning full-time to my original restaurant, Black Trumpet, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and welcome any Ondine guests who happen to be in the neighborhood.  I wish all of our fellow Belfast business owners every success, and I plan to visit Belfast as often as possible in the days and months ahead.With many thanks and warm memories,
