BELFAST — On Dec. 31, Chase’s Daily, a popular farm-to-table restaurant and market on Belfast’s Main Street, will close its doors, permanently.

The vegetarian establishment will go out in style.

From 5:30 to 8 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Chase’s will offer its last meal at no charge to all who want to join. Fare for the last meal will be casual. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

Donations will be accepted to help assist Chase’s employees in their transition into new employment.

Owners Penny and Addison Chase opened the business on July 1, 2000. Using products from their farm in Freedom, the couple built a farm-to-table restaurant/market that consistently grew in popularity. The couple employed their children to help run the farm and restaurant.

Chase’s Daily offered vegetarian fare with table service until COVID changed that to counter service. The business also sold produce from the family farm as well as plants.

In November the Chases announced they were considering closing the restaurant/market, but would still operate their farm. A few weeks later they announced their last day.
