Hidden Pond is thrilled to be collaborating with famed Boston chef and James Beard Award-winner Ken Oringer in creating Earth, our open air restaurant overlooking the pond and nightly bonfire.
Earth focuses on “farm to fork” freshness, with a menu that derives inspiration from onsite organic gardens at the Farm and Earth's backyard, as well as the numerous local dairy farms, cheese makers, foragers, farmers and fisherman of the Southern Coast of Maine.
Earth is now closed for the winter, and we look forward to re-opening in May 2015. To visit Earth's website directly, and view some of our upcoming Winter Events, please click HERE.
Farm to Vine Culinary Series
Join us on select Monday evenings this fall for our special Farm to Vine Culinary Series. We will offer exclusive dinners with intriguing themes. Reservations are required. Learn more HERE.
MENU highlights will include house-made charcuterie, handmade pastas and wood oven fired pizzas. Sea delicacies mingle with creative takes on sustainable proteins such as scallops, beef and duck. Equally thoughtful attention has been paid to Earth’s wine and cocktail menus. Cocktails are inspired by the earth too, incorporating lemon balm, sweet cicely, and basil among other flowers and herbs. Earth will also feature a superb collection of our own infused liquors and spirits to showcase our local bounty. Wines will be available from around the world including Argentina, Australia and Chile.
Earth’s décor makes the most of its setting with a soothing and rustic palette; bringing the outdoors inside with creative use of tree trunks intricately woven into a wall design, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and an open-air patio overlooking a second on-property vegetable garden and pond.
Dining at Earth is an adventure for your senses…a visually stunning dining room with incredibly high ceiling and soft flame lighting, the hand selected rhythmic music filling the air and mingling with the lively conversation. The enticing aromas wafting from the kitchen, perfectly melding with the crackling of the nightly bonfire, will lure in you for a memorable dining experience.
Summer Entertainment at Farm Bar
On Wednesday nights in July and August, Earth features live outdoor entertainment at The Farm Bar. Small plates and signature cocktails are available while plush seating ensures a comfy visit and the bonfire provided the perfect backdrop.
