Pig + Poet Restaurant

Thoughtful Food In Camden Maine


Unique among Camden Maine restaurants, we embrace a modern Maine interpretation on simple ingredients and sustainable sourcing. Located in Camden, Maine in the recently renovated Whitehall hotel, Pig + Poet celebrates thoughtful American food in relaxed modern surroundings. Dinner is served six nights a week in the dining room, or you may choose to enjoy the outdoor patio with one of our many seasonally inspired cocktails. View the menu.

One of the best Camden Maine restaurants featuring Maine’s farmland, fisheries and game, Pig + Poet offers a raw bar and creative dishes, such as lobster mac and cheese with orecchiette, mornay, English peas, and basil; fried chicken, with maple-ginger glaze, corn bread, and hot sauce; and a signature roast pork dish — porchetta with egg, chimichurri, baby kale, and puffed hominy

The “poet” in the name is a nod to the chef’s role in the creative process, as well as a subtle wink to Edna St. Vincent Millay, a Pulitzer-Prize winning poet who was discovered at Whitehall in 1912.

Lark Hotels is thrilled to breathe new life into Whitehall by showcasing modern American cuisine at its finest and freshest.

The Chef


Group Executive Chef, Justin Perdue

Chef Perdue was hired to oversee a number of Lark Hotels restaurants and has lent his creative energy to helping craft a new, modern-Maine menu for Pig + Poet while also launching Lark's newest restaurant, Picnic Social, in Stowe, Vermont.

Before joining Lark Hotels, Justin worked within the Hotel Sofitel group as an Executive Chef, at both the Chicago and Philadelphia locations. Prior to his stints with Sofitel, Chef Perdue worked in many renowned kitchens, including Bobby Flay's Bar Americain where he honed his skills while at attending NYC’s International Culinary Center, NoMi inside the Park Hyatt Chicago, and Topolobampo, where he gained experience under famed chef Rick Bayless.
