The Tropics Meet Maine

Inspired by the architecture, decor & aesthetic of Nest at Autumn Lane Estate.

Our menu showcases a variety of small plates and main courses that feature tropical twists on classic dishes, fresh seafood, and as much locally farmed and grown produce as possible.

    The Creative Team

    Chef: Isabel Pearson-Kramer

    Meet the Chef: Isabel is a philosopher turned chef; After graduating from Bates College with a B.A. in Philosophy in 2020, the pandemic gave her some time to consider all her passions and ultimately discover her love for all things culinary. She then pursued a formal culinary training at SMCC, honed her skills as a private chef all over Maine, and rounded out her training as a line cook and sous chef in a few local restaurants. And, although she would consider herself primarily a savory chef, she aims to continue her education and experimentation with baking and pastry as well.

    Artist | Designer: Richard Earl Leong Yu Ralya

    Richard Earl Leong Yu Ralya is a multidisciplinary artist currently living between Sicily and Hawaii. His works have been acquired for private collections in California, Hawaii, Istanbul, and Italy. Born in New York, raised in rural Northern Virginia, Richard moved to the West Coast to study engineering at the University of California, Berkeley where his first Art classes solidified his decision to pursue a degree in Art. After graduating with a BFA in Painting from the prestigious San Francisco Art Institute, Richard moved to Hawaii to be closer to family and develop his creative practice.... Read More

    In 2015 he left Hawaii behind and moved to Istanbul Turkey to refocus his life around creativity and the making of Art. For the next two years, he traveled extensively and was invited to attend artist residencies in both Istanbul and Sicily. It was during this time that he redefined his notion of “studio” and developed his ideas for achieving creative independence while also embarking on projects that would expand his work beyond 2D painting and drawing. In 2017, Richard became the Artistic Director for the Sicilian non-profit association Art Project Graniti and set about the business of achieving creative independence with a focus on intuitively pursuing artistic projects. He is currently splitting his time between LLMN Studio (a creative think-tank based in Hawaii), Relje International (high end custom leather designs) and a new venture creating a web application to help manage the home-care of his father who is living with late stage Parkinson’s Disease.
