The Tao Restaurant arrived in Brunswick, Maine about June of 2012, not quite a year ago. Since its arrival it has become one ot the leading restaurants in a town of 21,000 that has manyh very good restaurants. Mother and daughter operate the restaurant with daughter Cara Stadler the chef and mom as chief organizer. The staff is superb and uniformly dressed. Cara has been an executive chef or sous chef in several top restaurants in Paris, Versailles, Shangai, Beijing, Singapore, Philadelphia, and more. Her youth hardly tells you of her experience. She takes a month each year to return to eastern Asia to keep current with her expertize. There are about 18 appetisers and entrees on the menu. All are nicely presented and flavored "small" servings, so Cara suggests 3-4 dishes per person. We often go with 2-3 couples, and 3 seems to be a good number of servings to satisfy the hungry and the less hungry in the group. We have enjoyed half a dozen visits to TAO and highly recommend this delightful Asian evening. We lived in Japan for 3 years, so we can compare with our experience there. Open 5 days/week, closed Sunday and Monday, and lunch Wed - Fri., Sunday brunch once a month.
