We'll be there again this summer, and want to show our friends why we love this area so much! I was disappointed to learn that Tony DeLuca closed his Wine Country Bistro, which we loved. I've heard that he's now at Niagara College's restaurant. Anyone have recent experiences there? Does one taste Tony's inspiration/influence in the food of his students? Should we try BENCHMARK?
We'll be back to STONE RD. GRILLE, and will probably go to RAVINE for lunch, if the weather cooperates. We're splitting our time between our favorite B&B, and also White Oaks, where our Living Social voucher includes meal credits. Has anyone been there this year? I guess that LIV and PLAY are their restos but haven't heard much about either.
Is there any word on TREADWELL'S move to NOTL? I'm hoping we're not going to get caught between the closing in Dalhousie, and the opening in NOTL. If so, (or even if not) we'll be looking for great new places to try, or those we've missed. I've read the older posts and know that the restaurants at Peller, Hillebrand, Vineyard and Strewn get high marks, but seem quite pricey, compared with the great food we've had at other places in NOTL.
I'm hoping that some of the local Chow Hounds will help me out, as they have in the past! TIA!
