Open Table MDI held their 1st dinner on Tuesday, February 6th at the Bar Harbor Congregational Church at 26 Mount Desert Street from 4PM to 7Pm and it was a success, feeding about 40 people a delicious free meal!

The vegetarian and vegan and gluten free menu (except for the biscuits) consisted of


  • Southern Skillet Black-Eyed Peas and Cauliflower
  • Homemade Biscuits with Maple Butter
  • Smoky Braised Kale with Crimini Mushrooms
  • There will also be a small amount of salad tossed with golden carrots and Chioggia beets from Beech Hill Farm, dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds, and an orange vinaigrette.

and I can attest to how good it was as I ate. Everything was delicious and I could have had more than the 2 homemade biscuits with maple butter than I ate! You know they were made with love, as they were all heart shaped!

Mark your calendars as the next free meals will be served March 13th and 20th and then weekly on Tuesdays beginning April 3rd!
