Here’s the deal: For $300 per person, you’ll go on a leisurely six-mile bike tour with chef Cartwright, the first stop being the marina to meet with fisherman for a guided lesson in lobsters. (You’ll wind up picking the best of the lot to take back.) Then you’ll go on a “crawl” of Kennebunk locations that offer some of the chef’s favorite crustacean delights – including, he promises, “locations somewhat unknown to tourists.” (All the better to impress Muffy and Chad at the next Wide Brimmed Hat Fundraiser.)
Finally, the crawl culminates in a multi-course dinner - either 4 or 9 prix fixe courses - in the acclaimed White Barn Inn Restaurant, featuring, of course, the chosen lobster. Just book two weeks in advance, and obviously the actual accommodations aren’t included. Right now rates start at $490 for a weekend night. But if you’re heading up to Vacation Land, here’s a package to get your claws into.
