Elda is a restaurant and bar located in Biddeford, Maine that draws inspiration from the coastal landscape and the seasons. The menu is designed to offer a variety of dishes to showcase the region at its best.

Elda also offers a variety of fine wines, beers, ciders, and cocktails to compliment your meal and experience. Our craft cocktail program is designed with unique flavors that are tailored to the seasonal menu.

UPDATE: Re-opening late Fall 2020


Elda is the creation of Chef Bowman Brown, recipient of the 2009 Food and Wine Best New Chef Award and a six-time James Beard Semifinalist for Best Chef: Southwest. He recently relocated to New England, the place where he started his cooking career.

The name Elda comes from Chef Brown's great-grandmother Elda Whiting Brown, and the restaurant is an homage to her and the hard-working predecessors that have formed his roots.
