Food and Drink

The menu at Fogo Island Inn is a tribute to the island itself, drawing inspiration from the bounty of the ocean and the land, as well as outport culinary traditions. Wild food is foraged by the lodge chefs and figures prominently in the cuisine, from spruce buds and seaweed to oyster leaf and chanterelles. It makes for delicious and inspired combinations: an entrée sprinkled with partridgeberries, a dessert featuring homemade sea-buckthorn sorbet and beets. Aside from three stellar meals, the kitchen cooks up treats throughout the day, from a snack upon check-in to warm pastries delivered to your door at daybreak.
