Urban Eye has posted a detailed update on Tiqa which is expected to open in January. The kitchen will be headed up by chef Bryan Dame and Patrick Morang will be the bar manager.
An in-house bakery will pump out rustic bread from Corsica and Lebanese flat breads. Crave a slice of semolina? Tiqa’s “bread program” will rise to the occasion.
Run independently from the hotel, Tiqa owners Deen Haleem and Carol Mitchell strive to put hospitality first. “This will be a warm, relaxing environment,” said James Lindvall, marketing director, who added “no one is doing this style of food in Maine.” Clearly there is Big City energy (and $$) running through this newcomer.
