At West Plains Bistro, chefs enhance classic European recipes with local, seasonal ingredients. They sprinkle salads and bruschetta with Woolwich goat cheese, for instance, and batter halibut in Niagara chardonnay. Dishes also showcase New World influences such as caramelized sweet potatoes and smoked bacon.
West Plains Bistro features a dining room steeped in European-inspired charm. Stained-glass lamps cast a warm glow on wrought-iron tables and bouquets of fresh flowers. The restaurant’s true gem is the outdoor patio, though, which has been modeled to resemble a quaint Parisian street, complete with flower boxes, street lamps, and Paolo Rossi juggling a soccer ball.
