On our way home from an extended weekend of camping in Nova Scotia, miss_chance and I took the Cat to Bar Harbor so that she could meet with a potential customer. After clearing Customs, checking into our motel on Main Street, and taking the first of two lovely showers, we headed across the street and found a gem of a restaurant. Perfect Mojitos, the leanest and tastiest duck I've ever had, and simply amazing swordfish. Too much swordfish suffers from being cut wrong, but the chef had a sushi master's understanding of how most succulently to orient the grain. A light grilling and a sauce just strong enough to stand up to the flavor of the fish made a wonderful combination. The scallops were very good for scallops in the US but as we had just come from Digby they had a very hard act to follow. The only real disappointment was that they were out of the tuna.
Not cheap, but then little in Bar Harbor is.
