Executive Chef Paul Cecconi's menu unclogs cluttered culinary air to dish crisp and clean concoctions loaded with colourful textures and rich flavour. The legendary ground chuck steak burger ($14) tithes more than 10% to the British Columbian beef magicians, starring a juicy patty crowned with peppercorn-Dijon mayo and nestled between the loving halves of an oregano-cheese Kaiser bun. Rigatoni lamb bolognese ($17) finds sweet recluse with mint pesto, almonds, and whipped ricotta .
Local Lounge & Grille hangs its 120-seat patio over Lake Okanagan and cleanses diners palates with local craft beers and more than 100 British Columbia VQA wines. Swill a glass of Okanagan Falls' See Ya Later Ranch 2007 pinot noir ($11 for a glass) while debating the strategy of your next office toilet paper loot. Lunch fare rivals dinner like an Olympian sibling and includes a vegetarian flaxbread panini ($12) that mulls over Happydays Goatcheese, portobello mushrooms, spinach, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Local Lounge • Grille
Though the Local Lounge • Grille’s 120-seat patio hovers over Lake Okanagan, the cuisine is close to the soil. Chef Paul Cecconi draws on locally grown ingredients for his menu of burgers, steaks, pastas, and seafood, which helped crown him the winner of the 2011 Ocean Wise Seafood Chowder Chowdown. Complex flourishes elevate classic dishes; Chef Cecconi adds a lavender glaze to beets and forms crispy falafel with chickpeas and Dungeness crab. Additionally, the eatery offers local craft beers and cocktails infused with Okanagan-made spirits.
