Dinner Menu

Nightly, we offer a customized Chef's Tasting Menu for $68 per person.  The menu is based heavily on local produce, meat and seafood cooked specifically for your table.  Your meal of approximately 15 courses will be uniquely prepared for you, with a large portion of dishes not from the a la carte menu.  The Chef's Tasting Menu can be adjusted for dietary restrictions with 48 hrs advance notice.  And on Wednesdays, the Chef's Tasting Menu is discounted to $48 per person.

Our regular a la carte menu changes frequently depending on what is in season.  To view a recent dinner menu, please click HERE.

You may book a reservation by calling 207 725-9002, emailing reservations@tao-yuan.meor book online online HERE.  If you are wondering why there are so many "8"s in the menu, it is because "8" is believed to bring good luck and prosperity. 

A Tour of the World through Wine 

Also beginning in February, we will be offering a monthly wine dinner the fourth Thursday each month, featuring wines for a particular region.  The series will be a tour of the world through wine, paired with a prix fixe menu in our usual style of Asian inspired small plates.  Chris Peterman, our sommelier, will be selecting fun, unusual, and classic wines from each region, which Cara will then create dishes to compliment.
