Owner & Chef

Owner Noah Talmatch was 16 years old when he landed his first restaurant job as a bus boy in his home town, Great Neck N.Y. This was the beginning of his long, multi layered and exciting career in the hospitality industry. Over the years, Noah has lived and worked in just about every position in restaurants and bars all over the world, including Sweden, France, Norway, Hawaii & Los Angeles. After 11 years of traveling, working and learning, Noah returned to NYC and opened his first establishment, The Ice Bar, which would go on to become one of New York City’s busiest and most well-known nightclubs. He followed with several more award winning places including NOA & The Lucky Burger Chain. Noah’s extensive experience, appreciation, passion for great wine and food finally brought him up to Portland Maine where he opened The North Point & Timber Steakhouse
