Opus Ten, my 10th restaurant, is the restaurant that I have wanted to open for many years. It is the restaurant that I have worked towards both in terms of my skill as a chef and in attaining the trust of our followers. It is only because of the support shown to us by many long-time followers in the regional dining community that I have reached this point and am able to present a restaurant with such high aspirations. I am filled with a sense of extreme excitement about Opus Ten. To have made this restaurant evolve from a long held dream to a possibility and finally into actually being is a dream come true.
I hope that I have piqued your interest and that you will trust me and my team enough to allow us to take you on a culinary journey for an evening very soon!
David’s Opus Ten specializes in tasting menus with wine pairings. Our frequent customers enjoy Opus Ten’s contemporary smart-casual environment, correct yet friendly service, and the variety of experience housed in our multifaceted menu. Our wines by the glass change often and are generally not commonly seen offered by-the-glass. Opus Ten is meant to be fun – Not stuffy. Join us!
For as long as I could remember, I knew wanted to be a chef. From learning how to make fresh pasta at seven years old, to getting my first job as a dishwasher at the age of 12, I have been on a quest to learn as much as I can from anyone I can. I grew up in Maine and have been working in Portland for six years. This past winter, I had the amazing opportunity to travel Europe, Southeast Asia and New Zealand and it reflects greatly in my dishes. My goal every night is to transport you to a different place. Whether it is an Italian sandwich cart in Florence, a noodle bar in Bangkok or your own grandmother’s kitchen. Cooking food for total strangers is an intimate, soulful way of communicating and if we have done our jobs right you will leave Opus Ten giddy and we won’t be strangers anymore.
