Chef Jeremy Lamoureux on the patio at Noble Kitchen + Bar in Brunswick. Sande Updegraph / For The Forecaster

Executive Chef Jeremy Lamoureux has fresh ideas for his restaurant, Noble Kitchen + Bar, in The Brunswick Hotel (4 Noble St., Brunswick, 837-6565).

They include dishes like Warmed Mediterranean Olives, Caprese Macaroni and Cheese, and Atlantic Seafood Bouillabbaisse that feature simply prepared, locally sourced, sustainable foods.  He plans to try new concepts that will allow customers to experience and learn in a comfortable and enjoyable way.  Look for special events, including a Harvest Dinner on the redesigned patio, that will feature the best of local bounty from the farm and the sea.

The Brunswick Hotel has options for meetings and social gatherings and staff will work with customers to create menus that will enhance their experience. The restaurant also offers a prix fixe menu for dinner before performances at Maine State Music Theater, starting at $19. For beer lovers, Flight Deck Brewing has created Noble Ale, a new brew sold exclusively at Noble Kitchen + Bar.

Lamoureux said he plans to participate in and support community activities. His goal is to give people an enjoyable experience that allows them to leave happy, and want to return.
