From the Ice Wine Festival that takes place each January to the Niagara Food Festival held each September, the region, its inhabitants, and the visitors who make their way here all know that when food and wine come together anywhere on the Peninsula, a good time will be had by all. Add to the many occasions of revelry the backdrop of the world-famous waterfalls, the stunning beauty of the Niagara Escarpment, and the hospitable environment, and you’re hard-pressed to find a better place to eat and drink.
So it should come as no surprise that the trend of good food and wine is on full display in little Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Fabulicious this November. A twice-a-year event that takes place each February and November, Fabulicious showcases the cuisine and artistry of the chefs associated with the Signature Kitchen restaurants. And, because it’s, Niagara, local flavors are front and center.
Here are four of the many reasons to take a trip to Niagara between November 12 and November 19 to hit the regional highlight that is Fabulicious.
1. The Restaurants
Known as the Signature Kitchens, 14 of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s finest restaurants have banded together over a desire to deliver imaginative, high-end cuisine that makes the most of the area’s rich produce, fruits, VQA wines, meat, seafood, and artisanal cheeses. Committed also to the guest experience, the food in every restaurant is served in a comfortable, rich atmosphere, where it is offered by professional and knowledgeable staff.
Every day of the year is the perfect day to visit a Signature Kitchen; it’s just that Fabulicious offers special menus at unbeatable value. Here are just a handful of the 14 restaurants participating in Fabulicious:
- LIV at White Oaks
- Riverbend Inn
- Bistro Six-One
- Peller Estates Winery Restaurant
2. The Prices
Fabulicious provides a wealth of opportunity to eat and drink like royalty, and it does so at prices that are astonishingly affordable! Prix-Fixe menus of three carefully curated courses—appetizers, main dish, and dessert—are offered for just $25 during lunch at each of the 14 restaurants and, the price is just $39 during dinner.
3. The Relaxed Pace
One hidden and treasured secret of Niagara in November is that due to the cooler temperature and lack of crowds, the pace the region settles into is much more conducive to enjoying leisurely meals in beautiful settings. Fabulicious takes place at just the right time to benefit from this relaxed pace before winter has set in. Enjoy cooler temperatures that aren’t yet cold, and an easy-going, rarely hurried feeling.
One more excellent reason to take in Fabulicious this November is its location. Niagara-on-the-Lake is considered by many to be one of the most charming and interesting towns in all of Canada. Its many wineries, quaint shops, fabulous parks, and top-notch restaurants all make it a place where, to the weary traveler looking for a true holiday, time can easily be well-spent.
Come to Niagara to eat and drink this November when Fabulicious will make enjoying an excellent meal easier than ever.
