Chef Jonathan Cartwright

To know Jonathan Cartwright is to know he has an unflappable adoration for three things: His food, his cycling, and his daughters. Visiting the wonderfully bright Musette is a kismet meeting of two of the three. Food and cycling, for Jonathan, have always gone hand-in-hand. From his early days of playing hooky from school, to biking to the apple orchards of Sheffield, England, to the opening of the picturesque Cape Porpoise gastronomic brainchild known as Musette. Modern European cuisine, with playful hints of the Maine coastline offerings, accentuated by his German and Puerto Rican influence- the menu is exactly as it sounds- whatever Jonathan Cartwright would feel like eating himself.



Musette is named after a small cotton sack filled with food and drink cyclists pick up during long-distance rides to re-energize. Hanging on the walls of Musette is a poster of the Tour de France along with pictures of the Maine coast and, of course, food. Among Jonathan’s charity work is Chef Cycle to raise money for No Kid Hungry. He trains extensively for this 300-mile trek.
Jonathan and Chef Selena Roy also raise money for the Dempsey Challenge – an annual run, walk, and cycle event which is the primary fundraiser for the Dempsey Center. Funds raised go directly to providing services to people impacted by cancer at no cost to them. In 2021, with the help of our amazing team & community, Jonathan, Selena, and the Musette team were able to surpass our goal of $35,000 and raised over $42,000 for the Dempsey Center.
