If you're dining in Niagara-on-the-Lake, here's a tip.
One of my favourite restaurants happened to be in NOTL: Stone Road Grille. Very much in the tradition of Richmond Station with a talented young chef preparing an inventive, eclectic and always reliable tasting menu along with an a la carte menu. It was a bit of a well-kept secret, as it was located in a strip plaza, and the sign outside simply said "RESTO".
The couple that ran it left after a few years and the restaurant carried on without them, but it was never the same.
Last year they returned to NOTL and took over the space again, rechristening it as Backhouse
They now run their own farm to supply the restaurant and they do "Cool Climate Cuisine" and "Integrated Sustainable Cuisine". I have not tried it yet, but if it's in the same league as Stone Road Grille, it's worth a reservation.
