When it comes to great food, we believe tradition and innovation go hand in hand. Our chefs embrace  the beauty and bounty of Maine, while presenting plant-based cuisine that is bold and full flavored. The Gothic serves as our culinary incubator to test new concepts and experiment with innovative culinary technique.

Originally built as The Belfast National Bank and named the ‘Gothic Building’ by Portland Architect George M. Harding in 1878, the High Victorian Gothic style adorns every corner of Belfast’s flatiron building. Today, The Gothic’s main dining room retains the original 16 foot tin ceiling, while both it and the bar room are surrounded by period wall moldings and window frames. Our kitchen has been refashioned as a state-of-the-art cooking environment, and our lower level has been crafted into an experimental preparation space.
