Originally built as The Belfast National Bank and named the 'Gothic Building' by Portland Architect George M. Harding in 1878, the High Victorian Gothic style adorns every corner of Belfast’s flatiron building. Today, The Gothic's main dining room retains the original 16 foot tin ceiling, while both it and the bar room are surrounded by period wall moldings and window surrounds. Our kitchen has been refashioned as a state-of-the-art cooking environment, and our lower level – crafted into an experimental preparation space.
When it comes to great food, we believe tradition and innovation go hand in hand. While celebrating the beauty and bounty of Maine, our chefs embrace modernist techniques and culinary tools to prepare food that is both familiar and original. We strive to present a menu that is bold and full flavored, while retaining the natural essence of our ingredients.
