We're going on an Audubon birding tour that I believe includes all meals. But because of the plane schedules we are arriving a day early. By some weird coincidence, a pair of Halifax relatives will be in St. John's the same day. So we need at least one meal on our own on Saturday with our relatives. We staying at the Delta Hotel at 120 New Gower St. (at Barters Hill). Is there anything special around there for lunch, late lunch or early dinner. We're from Brooklyn, NYC so I doubt whether there is any place beyond our price expectations. The only restriction is that we will be in tourist clothes. Some place with local color with Newfoundland, Atlantic Canada food is preferred as I'm sure we'd do better for French, Italian, Thai, BBQ, Chinese, Mexican etc. in NY. A place that is a bit touristy is OK as long as locals eat there too.
AND then Cuban Rum. Is there a nearby liquor store that would have Havana Club Cuban rum (any grade-regular, anejo or anejo especial)?. Coming from the USA that boycotts Cuba we can only get this nectar of the gods when we leave the US.
