Aragosta

in Deer Isle & Stonington

The best restaurant for miles around, Aragosta serves delicious, painstakingly prepared dishes sourced locally from farm and sea. The seasonal menu is small (around seven main courses and an equal number of appetizers), ensuring there are no bad choices. We recommend roasted Long Cove oysters, Common Wealth Farm duck breast or the outstanding Stonington lobster casoncelli (stuffed pasta).

The elegant waterfront dining room is headed by chef Devin Finigan, who has trained with Thomas Keller, Jean-Georges Vongerichten and other renowned chefs. Reserve ahead (with sunset times in mind).
