Restaurant the River

On a soft bend in the slow moving Burnley Creek running through Warkworth, Ontario a restaurant was opened for a single weekend in 2015. In the week prior, traps were set to capture an invasive species of freshwater crustaceans called “Rusty Crawfish”. Guests were invited to leave behind their sock & shoes, take a seat at a table in the river and be served a four course amuse bouche menu of local treats. Prince Edward County Wines were chilled to the river temperature.
