The Windjammer is a Canadian classic, an unlikely slice of authentic France in a small Maritime city. Chef Stefan Müller and his team have served VIPs ranging from the Queen of England to visiting celebrities. Its signature is the “100 Mile Table” offering four courses of local seasonal ingredients, including in-season tomatoes and herbs from the rooftop garden where bees produce honey. The meal might include half dozen of New Brunswick’s finest oysters, mildly briny and delicately sweet Beau Soleil and such star mains as the finest cuts of Blue Dot PEI beef and Australian Wagyu, bison, New Zealand rack of lamb or Atlantic lobster. As for the decor: with its heavy wood and nautical theme, it resembles the private officers' mess of an exclusive ship, so excellent if you're looking to impress someone. Ask to be assigned to the waiter Frederick’s table—one of the most charming men in the Maritimes (think: Maurice Chevalier)
