Supporting Ellsworth restaurants

Dear Editor:

June is the month when Heart of Ellsworth for the past three years has celebrated area restaurants with its Taste of Ellsworth event. Hundreds of people turned out to socialize with friends, try the tasty offerings created by the area’s talented chefs and listen to tunes in an open-air setting.

This year, due to the pandemic, we are not able to bring this much-loved event to the community. However, we know that area restaurants need our support this year more than ever. So, we ask everyone to join in what we are calling the 2020 version of Taste of Ellsworth.

Create your own dining adventure! Never had Sri Lankan food? Call and order takeout from Serendib. Wondering what a Yam I Am is? Give 86 This! a call and they will whip one up for you. Always wanted to treat yourself to a Sunday brunch? Provender can make it happen. That’s right, we are asking everyone to support our city’s restaurants as they find their new normal and get back up and running in this unprecedented time. Most are offering takeout with curbside pick-up; others are finding ways to provide safe dine-in options. Those that can are offering outdoor seating options. With the warm days ahead, why not pick up takeout and enjoy one of Ellsworth’s numerous parks or its beautiful waterfront for a special lunch or dinner out. You can relax and safely enjoy dining out while helping restaurants get back in the groove and rebuild their businesses. For information, visit our website, heartofellsworth.org.

So, just like we did with our Taste of Ellsworth event, we invite you to create your own dining adventure. What will the 2021 Taste of Ellsworth look like? We don’t know just yet, but our board is already planning for a vibrant return of its signature event.

So for now, I look forward to seeing folks in and around Ellsworth enjoying the culinary scene as we have never seen it before!

Phyllis Young, President
