What's in a name? The answer is Our Whole Family!
The ImPASTAble Dream became a reality in 1993 in Kennebunk, Maine. That is where we first started out with a lot of help from family and friends. At that time we had a maximum seating for only twenty-seven people; and back then we also served lunch and offered a "take-out" menu as well. The townspeople were so good to us that by the next summer we were able to expand the seating to include al fresco dining on the deck. It is hard to believe that Clarice's three boys were only 9, 11, and 13, at the time. They were often there with us, breaking in as dishwashers, busboys, even hosting at times, and in the winter helped shovel snow! From those early beginnings we've seen a lot of growth, additions and changes. During that four-year span of time we shared many proud moments together, especially the birth of our daughter Naomi in 1997. Then in 1998 we reached a new milestone with the relocation of the business to our own building on shaw Road in Ogunquit. This current restaurant seats sixty-seven, and thanks to the solid following of our long-time faithful friends from Kenniland, and our newer friends and travelers to Ogunquit, we continue to serve our pasta specialties in the same manner and tradition as from our first humble beginnings.
The ImPASTAble Dream was just that a fantasy dream! But, the vision gave us the "eyesight" and ambition to start our own restaurant. Jerry is a graduate of the Culinary Institute and Clarice comes from generations of family members who have handed down a heritage and love for restaurants and the food preparation business.
We invite you to visit The ImPASTAble Dream you will most likely find both of us there and even members of our whole family.
