Well . . . Here it is, the end of January already.

Winter at the Welch House Inn

You’re probably wondering what we do for fun during the winter. To be honest, it is pretty sleepy here from Christmas to Easter, but we manage to amuse ourselves.

We go out to friend’s houses alot and have dinner parties. We also have friends over for dinner parties. We eat out. Alot. Maybe too much. We go to McSeagulls, and Jordon’s and the Thistle Inn. They’re all open. But we really wanted to try something new and out-of-town, so we went to Brunswick and ate at Trattoria Athena, a brand-new Greek/Italian restaurant. Absolutely fabulous! Here’s my review I wrote for Trip Advisor:

“Brunswick, Maine is fast getting a reputation for having exceptional restaurants and Trattoria Athena is an example of this excellence. No pretense here, despite the incredible wine list of both Greek and Italian choices. Small and intimate, with specials hand-written on a chalkboard and a menu comprised of very thoughtful and wonderfully executed Greek and Italian entrees, Trattoria Athena can seat 30 or so. No pizza, no meatballs. Appetizers include traditionals like Tzatziki, Dolmathes and very clever Bruschette, but also Arancini, fried risotto balls stuffed with mozzarella. Entrees include Arni Yiouvesti (lamb shank) Katsikaki (local goat) and Anatra all’Arancia e Mandorle (wine-braised local duck), amongst others. Fantastic!

The food was superb (and reasonable), the staff exceptional and I loved the tin-ceiling ambiance. Trattoria Athena goes on my list of “must visit again” restaurants in Brunswick.” Click Here to download a copy of their current menu.
