My family and I are planning a girls only trip to NOL for June. I've been researching some menus and it seems that most of the restaurants in NOL have a very fancy menu. Can anyone make a recommendation for some restaurants that would cover all our needs? We have a 20 year old vegetarian (who doesn't eat vegetables, but doesn't eat meat or seafood), a 12 year old picky eater, a seafood lover, a pasta lover. Any help would be appreciated. We will be staying on Mary Street so any restaurants recommended close to their would also be good, for b, lunch and dinner.

sounds like you will have a bit of a truggle on your hands, what does your 20 year old eat if not meat or vegetables? You might want to try the restaurant at Peller Estates the head chef Jason Parsons is a great chef and will make dishes that will fulfill your families dietary requirements

Good Luck!

While Peller might offer a solution to dining issues for your group, it does fall into the "fancy menu" category. I think you may find The Buttery, The Stone Road Grille (to go menu) and The Epicurean might have a little more to offer a group as diverse as yours---- pasta and pizza sound like the options for the most part.

Good luck!

Hi Mampgh,

NOTL is definitely a "destination" when it comes to food, wine, fine accomodations and entertainment. You will find less "fancy" places, but they won't be inexpensive or chain-like... for that you'd have to go to Niagara Falls. NOTL is a very trendy little city that prides itself on upscale cuisine... that said, here is another recommendation for the Epicurean Bistro www.epicurean.ca and I'll add in a couple of others: Zee's Patio & Grill www.zees.ca - The Irish Harp www.theirishharppub.com - as well as The Pie Plate in nearby Virgil.

You'll find lots of other ideas on the TA REVIEWS Section for NOTL RESTAURANTS (click on the button on the left of this screen).
