Acadia was the name given to lands in a portion of the French colonial empire of New France, in northeastern North America that included parts of eastern Quebec, the Maritime provinces, and modern day Maine. The word Acadia comes from the word ‘Arcadia,’ which derives from the Arcadia district in Greece, which since classical antiquity had the extended meanings of ‘refuge’ or ‘idyllic place.’
An open kitchen and wine room reinforce the fact that Acadia is first and foremost dedicated to quality food and wine with attention to detail paid to both. A la carte and tasting menus are available, featuring McCaskey’s contemporary take on Classic American cuisine. Attentive service, contemporary classic cocktails, and a global wine list round out the offerings.
The sophisticated, elegant space of Acadia provides a perfect house for the simultaneously contemporary and classic cuisine from Chef Ryan McCaskey. Divided into a lounge space, dining room and private dining room, Acadia is comfortable and inviting, with natural elements throughout. Soaring ceilings and colors of warm neutrals, cool grays, chocolate and sage are peppered throughout the minimal space.
