NEW YORK CHEF SARA JENKINS RETURNS TO HER MAINE ROOTS WITH NĪNA JUNE, A MEDITERRANEAN-STYLE TRATTORIA OVERLOOKING PICTURESQUE ROCKPORT HARBOR ON THE SHORES OF PENOBSCOT BAY

A trattoria in the convivial Mediterranean tradition, where friends and neighbors, tourists and passers-by, mingle over morning coffee and a muffin, an easy-going pasta lunch, or a full-service dinner with a menu that changes weekly depending on what’s fresh and in season.

ABOUT THE RESTAURANT

After many years at the helm of her acclaimed New York City restaurants, Chef Sara, who was born next door in Camden, Maine, but raised in Italy, Spain, and Lebanon, now brings her Mediterranean passion to the magnificent array of products from the bounty of Maine’s oceans and farms. Take the finest Maine has to offer, then give it a fresh, tasty Mediterranean spin—that’s what you’ll find at Nīna June (the name comes from Sara’s childhood nickname).

Along with a convivial open interior, Nīna June boasts a sunny deck and enchanting view of Rockport harbor, with its sailboats, fishing vessels and little Indian Island lighthouse in the distance.
