Have to tell you all about the great new restaurant in Belfast. The Lost Kitchen - on Main Street in what we refer to as the "flat iron"building. It opened this fall but we didn't get to sample until Thanksgiving.
The whole family got to go a couple of days after Thanksgiving- what a treat- they have a large selection of small plates - our crowd sampled almost all of them. Some of the highlights were frites with herb de provence, lamb sliders and fabulous fried oysters. They usually have 2 or 3 main dishes. We sampled fabulous fish with a garlic aioli and surrounded by mussels.
The desserts hold there own here as well- the "donuts and coffee" - fabulous beignets with a great coffee flavored sauce.
I had heard through the grapevine that the chef Robin- had experimented last summer with some "mystery" dinners that helped her hone her skills and define her menu.
Since Thanksgiving we have visited 2 more times and we love the atmosphere and the great wait staff. There have been some hiccups with running out of menu items before the evening is over but I so hope they iron them all out before the summer crowds arrive. The great local produce, meats and even locally roasted coffee make The Lost Kitchen a winner in Belfast!!! Check it out if you are passing by!
