A new bistro in Rockland? Mais oui

Amalfi has moved to the coast–okay, closer to the coastline, and in its place comes Lily Bistro. The French bistro, slated to open May 1, is operated by the husband-and-wife chef team of Lynette Mosher and Robert Krajewski.

Their background is impressive. Both are grads of Johnson & Wales; both have instructed at the New England Culinary Institute; and their CV includes stints at some of Boston’s best kitchens: Olives, Clio, Radius, Biba, Pignoli, Truc, Chez Henri, Pigalle.

The menu is undeniably French, but created with a Maine accent. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Expect early season specials such as champagne-poached Maine shrim in thyme crepes with pea-tendril salad; Maine halibut with arugula pesto and pignoli gnocchi; saffron cavatelli with Maine lobster; roast chicken with prunes; moules Provencal and similar fare. Most foods will be locally sourced.

It plans to be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday, dinner only on Sunday. Prices will range $9 to 14 for lunch, $9-19 for dinner.

I’ll report back once I’ve visited, but this should make a nice addition to Rockland’s increasingly intriguing and international dining scene.

UPDATE: See my May 12 Lily Bistro posting.

  1. These chefs can really cook! I’m so excited to visit them in their new home! You will not be dissappointed!

  2. Assuming you’re not one of their moms, or their PR guy, tell me more: Where did you dine, why did you like it? (And if you are mom or PR guy, go ahead and dish, but please ID yourself).

  3. Both of these chefs can surely cook!
    I worked with both of them as Instructors at New England Culinary Institute. Chef Lynette was the chef of our “Fine Dining” restaurant, the Chef’s Table, and her food was great…I taught Service Management and ran the dining room at this location so I heard the compliments first hand.
    We miss her very much.
    Good luck and I can’t wait to come up and enjoy their food once again.

  4. You’re making me hungry, and I just finished the last piece of a tortierre from Pere Nature, in St. George de Beuce–French food done Quebec style. Mmmmmm.
