Saint John may not be a top culinary destination, but this Maritime city’s restaurants are making local ingredients shine in both upscale and casual menus. Check out our top picks in Saint John!
Stop by East Coast Bistro in downtown Saint John, where eating well and eating local are synonymous. East Coast Bistro puts a contemporary Maritime spin on classic French cuisine. The approachable yet elegant menu reflects a commitment to local and seasonal ingredients, with everything made in-house from scratch.
Arguably the best Thai food in town, Splash Thai Cuisine offers dishes full of authentic flavours and fresh ingredients. The modern space is as beautiful as the plates themselves, with a mahogany bar serving up cocktails and acclaimed wines.
