I was very excited to visit Corner Brook (and Marble Mountain!) for the first time a few weeks ago. The skiing was amazing, as about a foot of snow had fallen right before we got there! There was also some delicious food in Corner Brook – here are my two faves from the trip.
Bay of Islands Bistro
I just can’t say enough about this place. Bright, upscale and welcoming ambiance, friendly service, and creative food. The menu changes seasonally and the chef takes great pride in his work. We loved that they used local dishes as inspiration, too: while we were there, they were serving rabbit with a topping of julienned carrots, celery and juniper. Dessert was truly delicious: the rum cake and flourless chocolate cake were huge hits.
Recommended for: An evening out with friends or à deux, special occasions, or an elegant lunch.
They also have a great website.
This place is a little more off the beaten path and is a hidden gem, indeed. Sorrento’s is best known for their homemade pastas, pizza and bread but their menu also boasted several other strengths. The salad with organic greens, candied walnuts and balsamic reduction had a great combination of flavours and textures and was definitely a cut above the phoned-in salad found at so many pasta places.
The house-made dessert was another surprise highlight at Sorrento’s. Definitely worth leaving room for!
Recommended for: A casual outing with family, friends and good food.
