There aren't a lot of opportunities to share exciting food news in Bath, but Coastal Journal reports that the owners of El Camino Cantina and Flipside Pizza in Brunswick have purchased the former home of Tintypes antiques at 244 Front Street. The new venture will be called Salt Pine Social, and co-owners Eloise Humphrey, Daphne Comaskey, and Paul Comaskey say they hope to be open by summer tourist season. The new restaurant is likely to focus on locally-sourced seafood, including a raw oyster bar, but beyond that there's little set in stone.
Catbird Creamery has found a new home in Westbrook. The ice cream shop and confectioner has 17 days remaining in its campaign to raise $60,000 for the expansion, and is still over $50,000 short of that goal. Nevertheless, the company announced via Facebook that it will be closed as of today while it moves just across the street from 846 Main Street to 861 Main Street in Westbrook. The move should take around a month.
Black Dinah has also found a new home in Westbrook. The chocolatier, which just won a Good Food Award for its "Cassis de Resistance" chocolate truffle, confirmed for the Bangor Daily News that it hopes to be producing chocolate in its new facility by the "second quarter" of this year, though an exact location has not been revealed. And here you thought Hershey, PA was Chocolate Town, USA.
