More about Craignair Inn: The Craignair Inn is a warm and welcoming bed and breakfast situated on a breathtaking section of coastline just south of Rockland. The inn was originally built to house granite quarry workers and evidence of the quarry workers’ time is portrayed in the beautiful granite causeway that stretches across the water to Clark Island, where a great quarry was once the center of this picturesque village. Clark Island is a magical place located just across the causeway from The Craignair Inn. They welcome guests looking for a peaceful retreat on the coastal edge of MidCoast Maine.
More about The Causeway Restaurant: Mardis Gras in Maine takes place at The Causeway restaurant, located inside The Craignair Inn. It kicks off with a 6-course pairing dinner featuring traditional Mardi Gras fare and six specialty Mardi Gras themed cocktails. The Causeway’s Chef Fernando once worked with the famed Chef Paul Prudhomme at his legendary K-Paul’s Louisiana Kitchen. In addition, Chef Fernando has also worked with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and SUSTA (Southern United States Trade Association) where he traveled around the world hosting Mardi Gras festivals. Perhaps nobody in the state of Maine has the training and experience preparing these dishes that Chef Fernando possesses! The Causeway restaurant will be transformed into New Orleans for the week, decorated with all of the traditional Mardi Gras flair, and guests are encouraged to dress in their Mardi Gras attire.
