Ending a 15-year run, Atlantica closed its bistro on Camden's waterfront for good last month. The restaurant made the official announcement via Facebook days ago, with chef/owner Ken Paquin and his Del explaining, "[we] are easing our way into a partial retirement." The business had 38 reviews on Yelp with an average of four stars and a strong streak going; the last time someone rated it less than four stars was over a year ago. It's hard to imagine the space staying empty for long, given its prime location overlooking Camden Harbor.
For the existing or aspiring restaurateur, or even the home cook, nearly everything from the business is now being auctioned online, from scales and toasters to a point of sale system, chairs, fridges and keg coolers, espresso machines, and even artwork. Bidding ends Monday, November 16 at 1 p.m. Christmas is coming, people — surely you know someone who's been eyeing a gently used French fry cutter.
