The Georgetown Inn, Georgetown, PEI

11 Jul ’11

One of the best things to happen to food in recent years is the move to local – it has sparked a surge of creativity in the restaurant world, and some of our favourite restaurants in Toronto have taken this philosophy truly to heart. Nowhere do you see this attitude more than at The Georgetown Inn in PEI – Chef Joel Short sources a wide variety of ingredients locally. Although they’ve been operating it for a few years now, we only just recently found our way down to try their kitchen – we had a terrific experience, and we’ll be back, soon.

On the menu for us: spinach salad (with a unexpectedly lovely dressing), carrot ginger soup with seared scallop (the best carrot soup either of us has every had – pictured), lobster risotto balls, halibut and rib steak.

The service was superb – engaging, intimate and very warm. The dining room is thoroughly charming – there are echoes here of a bygone era. It was busy when we visited mid-week – you should make reservations.
