We realize it’s a three-hour drive from Chalets Restigouche to the capital, but if you have the time consider making the trip for dinner at Saint John Ale House.

Ranking at No. 39 in the Top 50 Restaurants in Canada Guide for 2013, the Saint John Ale House features locally sourced pub fare that is the talk of the town. Hundreds of public votes were received for the ale house, which is run by executive chef Jesse Vergen, a passionate supporter of New Brunswick’s farmers. Deputy Editor Rod Charles spoke with Vergen, informing him of Saint John Ale House’s inclusion in the highly discussed Top 50.

Charles writes: “One thing Vergen and his staff noticed was how poorly lobster rolls were made in the province, even describing one establishment that used frozen lobster stuffed in a hot dog bun.

“’Our joke was to put a lobster roll on the menu, but we said we were going to do it in a different way — let’s make a really good lobster roll,’ said Vergen. ‘So our lobster roll consists of literally a lobster and a half worth of meat that we shuck out of a shell, literally 7.5 ounces worth of lobster meat. We toss it up, we give a lot of care to it, we have a homemade loaf of sourdough, and we slice it and fry it in lobster butter, and it comes out really beautiful. When the customer gets it, it’s like shock and awe, it’s a really different take on the lobster roll. And they love it.’”
