Some say Mache Bistro is the best in Bar Harbor (it is great, but somewhat overrated in my opinion), but I’d have to give top honors to Fathom. There’s just something about the fusion of flavors (in all the preparations I tasted) that can only be described as sublime. The Fathom chef is very accomplished – make no mistake about that!
Starting things out, the homemade anadama and focaccia swirl bread was simply delicious. The Lobster Fried Spring Roll appetizer had my taste buds jumping for joy. And my seared Chateaubriand filet with wild mushroom béarnaise was just about the best (and most tender) steak I’ve ever had, anywhere (and I’ve eaten at the best steakhouses, from New York to Vegas). Even the crispy kale that accompanied my meal was like eating a melt-in-your-mouth slice of heaven.
If you’re looking for the best of the best on Mount Desert Island/Bar Harbor, you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you didn’t add Fathom to the top of your "must visit" restaurant list.
