Annemarie Ahearn, chef/owner of Salt Water Farm in Lincolnville, has just this evening opened her first restaurant, Salt Water Farm at Union Hall in Rockport. This is tonight's menu. The head chef is Justin Barrett, a veteran of April Bloomfield's celebrated restaurant, The Spotted Pig, and also The Fat Radish, both in New York City. The general manager is Andrew Kesselring, who like Ahearn, worked for chef Dan Barber - he at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, she at Blue Hill.Tweet
