Primo Restaurant Maine Garden Tour & Dinner Package
Primo Restaurant Maine Garden Tour and Dinner Package
This package was developed for Guests of the Berry Manor Inn who love Primo Restaurant and the gastronomical delights created by Chef Melissa Kelly and Price Kushner.
Package guests will enjoy self-guided strolls through the gardens of Primo Restaurant prior to dinner. With Melissa Kelly winning the James Beard Award for Chef of the Northeast 2013, the restaurant is very busy so Guided Garden Tours are very limited for the 2015 summer season. Dates for special Guided Garden tours led by the restaurant’s gardener extraordinaire will not be announced until spring, 2015. With the guided tour, you learn the secrets of this fantastic, organic, sustainable garden and farmyard. In 2009, Primo Restaurant was named by Bon Appetite as the most eco-friendly restaurant in the US because of their environmental practices.
After either the guided or self-guided garden tour, guests can enjoy an early dinner with table service (please let your innkeeper know in advance so we can make reservations) or upstairs in the new tavern (no reservations needed). The menu changes daily and features multiple dishes chosen by Chef Melissa Kelly herself to highlight the bounties of the garden picked that very day. Tours will be offered between late June and the end of September.
You will leave dinner sated and with a new appreciation for the enhanced flavors garnered when a restaurant truly practices from farm to plate.
- Two vouchers for the Guided Garden Tour at Primo (donation goes to local soup kitchen) if available
- $50 Voucher for Dinner valid for table service (must be reserved in advance please let your innkeeper know your preferred time) or upstairs in the newly renovated Tavern
- Cab Fare to and from the restaurant
- An autographed copy of chef Melissa Kelly’s book “Mediterranean Women Stay Slim, Too”
Package dates for the 2015 will not be known until mid- June, 2015. Self-tours are always available. Restaurant reservations are challenging at best so please allow three weeks advanced notice or be willing to dine in the Tavern. Add $85 to your choice of a room.
