I am looking for an up to date list of the fine dining restaurants in St. John's, Newfoundland and the surrounding areas (willing to drive up to an hour or three away, particularly for a scenic/spectacular spot). Also, we are looking for local spots, perhaps off the beaten path, with delicious food and reasonable prices- a sort of "best of cheap eats" if you will.
I live in NYC, and my boyfriend is a consultant posted in St. John's for the next few months. I am visiting for about 4 days at the end of this month (June), and that time will be shared between the city and the countryside (once we figure out where else to go!). Living in NYC, we are pretty spoiled by the good food, but gravitate towards local, seasonal and creative cuisine. We are also adventurous eaters and like to try what we don't find back home- are cod tongues still around? Are they as good as I have read one blogger describe? Any other local delicacies we should know about?
Any help from residents or travelers would be greatly appreciated!
