I love Juniper! The food, the wine list, the service and most of all, the chefs who are as talented and dedicated as any on the Food Day roster.
Chef /Owner Norm Aitken hails from PEI where he cooked with Chef Michael Smith. He loves seafood (hence the image) and is able to rise to almost any culinary challenge.
On a recent occasion a group of Canada’s foodies landed in, unannounced, and he and his team created a tasting menu to rival any. While I loved the oysters, the dish that I’d go back for in a heartbeat is titled Pork/Pork/Pork on his menu…grilled loin, slow cooked belly and slow smoked ribs with grilled sweet potato polenta, apricot chutney and a smokey maple-bbq sauce. Thankfully a dampened napkin was provided along side the dish.
