The new restaurant going into Spring Point Marina in South Portland, former home of Joe’s Boathouse, will be called 43North and will open in late May or early June, according to one of the partners developing the business.

Laura Argitis, owner of the Old Port Sea Grill, said the dockside, two-level 43North is named after the location’s latitude. The chef will be Stephanie Brown, who is now executive chef at the Woodlands Club in Falmouth. Brown previously owned Sea Grass Bistro, a small restaurant in Yarmouth that is now closed.

Argitis said Brown’s menu will change often and focus on American cuisine with French and Italian influences. Seafood will be a fixture on the menu.

Argitis is partnering with the owner of Port Harbor Marine, which operates Spring Point Marina, to develop the new restaurant, next to the Breakwater condominiums.

Joe’s Boathouse closed in late 2015 after 23 years in business, and the 35-year-old, one story building that housed it has been torn down.
