Chebeague Island Inn’s New Chef

Maine a la Carte has reported on a preview dinner at Chebeague Island Inn prepared by their new chef Brandon Hicks.

Hicks moved to Maine from ilili Restaurant in New York City, where he spent the last three years as chef de cuisine. Before that, he worked at several New York restaurants, including a stint as chef de cuisine at Brasserie 8 1/2; maitre fromager at Artisinal Restaurant; and chef de partie at Picholine.

Hicks is also a certified master sommelier, and shared some of his knowledge about wine – as well as a bottle or two from his own cellar – during the course of the evening.
