Francine Bistro

55 Chestnut St.
Camden, ME, 04843, United States
TEL: (207) 230-0083

Coastal Maine-influenced cuisine is the inspiration at this bistro in Camden, Maine. Francine is the brainchild of chef-owner Brian Hill, who cut his teeth beside Todd English at the original Olives restaurant before working as chef at notable restaurants in London, Los Angeles, Hawaii, and New Orleans. Specializing in local, organic meats and seafoods, the restaurant's seasonal menu includes four appetizers, a salad, and four entrees, all of which rotate daily. Expect to find items like pemaquid oysters and rope-grown mussels with herbs, lime, and black butter. Unlike many businesses in the area, Francine is open year-round.  

Insider Tip:

The goat's milk cheesecake with pinot cherries is one of the most popular reoccurring desserts, but make sure to call ahead and see if it's on the menu that day.
