Located in the heart of downtown Bangor, Maine, The Fiddlehead Restaurant takes a fresh, unique look at the concept of fine dining. With only the most quality ingredients,  comfort-style dishes get a little extra finesse, interpreted from cuisine ranging from the Far East to Downeast. Changing seasonally, the menu features local produce and meats.

The full bar consists of house-made cocktails, created with fresh-squeezed juices and natural purees; each made-to-order with particular requests our specialty. The wine list offers a new concept for both the fledgling wine drinker, as well as the connoisseur, with a concentration on introducing different labels from less well known vintners and regions. Priced to intrigue, most of the list—both red and white—is offered by the glass to ensure that customers are comfortable trying wines which may be unfamiliar.
