Discover Tao Yuan 

The cuisine of Tao Yuan is guided by fresh ingredients that are available locally, infused with Asian flavors and a mixture of modern cooking techniques, to produce food that is unique, and that we hope you will find delicious.  Flavors vary from upscale versions of Asian street food, to the chef's signature pan seared scallops with celeriac puree, white dashi, trout roe and nori; along with a variety of wines, beers, and signature cocktails, all served on small plates to allow each diner to sample several courses in a single meal.

Spring Schedule & Special Events

Sicily Wine Dinner.  On May 4th we will be diving into the wines of Sicily.  The island of Sicily, located off of Southern Italy, has been home to a number of indigenous grape varieties and time honored wine growing traditions for 3,000 years.  The region has evolved from the production of bulk wines in the 1980's to quite a selection of quality wines from vineyards focused on natural and sustainable processes.  We have chosen some special and unique examples for this dinner.  Please join us and see what Sicily has to offer!  The menu can be found HERE.  Our regular menu will not be available.  Space is limited and reservations are highly recommended.  Please call 207.725.9002 for reservations.
