Come experience their passions that drive the Sonder bar program.

The Food– Michael Gosselin.  A Lewiston native, Michael became passionate about food at a young age.  After graduating as a Lewiston Blue Devil, he went on to study at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. After returning to Maine, he worked steadily in local area restaurants for over a decade, where he helped open two restaurants and manage two kitchens as Chef.  An innate desire to host and feed people has fueled his passion for food and hospitality throughout his career. Michael has always been proud to be from L+A and his Franco-American heritage has influenced his philosophies on life and cuisine. Come see Michael and his incredible protégé Brandan Barr, as they create amazing food from our small but effectual 9×10 kitchen.

To build something magnificent requires the work of many hands. It is more than the sum of its parts. A craving for new restaurants and dining experiences pushed the members of GFDG to get involved in the exciting future of cuisine and entertainment in downtown Lewiston. Sonder & Dram is a culmination of determination, enthusiasm, and high hopes for L+A.



the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping whiskey in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
