At The Open Studio Restaurant, Expect the Unexpected

The Open Studio Restaurant reflects the exploration that defines everything we do. Exploring the abundance of top quality seafoods readily available, as well as the bounty of berries, mushrooms and other wild delights that inhabit the misleadingly labeled ‘barrens’. The Open Studio Restaurant is located in the old Grates Cove schoolhouse, and includes an event facility, gift shop and open studio space featuring original art, craft and products inspired by Terrence and Courtney's explorations in and around Grates Cove.

The Open Studio Restaurant is open six days a week from May through October (closed on Wednesdays).
