Gastronomic Tour of Asia 

Our Gastronomic Tour of Asia runs from February through May.  On two consecutive Sundays, we explore the cuisine of a different country in Asia.  The majority of these dinners are $38 per person, with a couple exceptions for menus that require specialty ingredients.  Our regular menu will not be available.  Dietary restrictions and allergies can be accommodated with advance notice ONLY.  Reservations are recommended.

Only one country remains:

5/22 & 5/29 Singapore

 

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 

On the fourth Thursday of every month we will be hosting a regional wine dinner.  The series will be a tour of the world through wine with Chris Peterman, our sommelier, selecting fun, unusual, and classic wines from each region.  Cara will then create a menu specifically created to complement and enhance each wine.  We will often depart from our usual style of Asian small plates, so this is a fun way to experience Tao as we experiment with food from all over the world.  The dinner menu is $68 per person, and the wine pairing is $38 per person.
