Solid props to Newfoundland cuisine in The Star

The Star’s Shelley Cameron-McCarron visited St. John’s “to eat” and it appears she wasn’t disappointed by her experience. “St. John’s, the lively port known for music and saucy good humour, is emerging as a destination for foodies as passionate, innovative, and in some cases newly proud locals put Newfoundland cuisine on the world map.Take Bacalao, already turning heads for its hyper-local cuisine. The restaurant opened four years ago and was the first on the scene to promote local. From the art on the walls to the Quidi Vidi beer on tap, everything is sourced as local as possible.” Shelley’s edible journey took her to Bacalao Restaurant, Chinched Bistro, The Newfoundland Chocolate Company, Rodrigues Wines, Quidi Vidi Brewery, and Raymond’s – and she was impressed every step of the way. “…there’s a new attitude blowing through town.”
