If you love the five-star food at the White Barn Inn but would like to enjoy it in a more casual atmosphere, check out the restaurant’s new seasonal bistro menu.
The new menu will be served in the inn’s second barn on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday evenings. No jackets will be required, as they are in the main dining room.
The food will include starters such as New England Clam Chowder and Chilled Kennebunkport Lobster Salad. Also on the menu will be lighter fare such as a House-Smoked Salmon Plate and Kennebunkport Lobster Salad.
And what says casual more than pizza? A variety of pizzas will be offered, including White Barn Inn Lobster Pizza.
The new menu will run through the end of March. Reservations are required; call 967-2321 and tell them you want the bistro menu.
