Fodor's Expert Review Chez Rioux & Pettigrew
This is the place to go for the freshest flavors of Canadian cuisine (think seafood, terroir vegetables, game meat) without the white tablecloth fuss. Chez Rioux & Pettigrew is a casual dining experience in a convivial, inviting venue with exposed brick. Back in 1860, Narcisse Rioux ran a general store here and supplied local restaurants, inns, and hospitals; it only makes sense that the gourmet mission carries on today (complete with trinkets from that former life) in a slightly more hands-on manner. For a bit of everything, opt for their five-service tasting menu, with the wine pairing for an extra C$45. Speaking of their modest yet curated wine list, aficionados will find an interesting selection of orange/maceration wines.
