Bolete is the newest gem located in an historic building in Downtown St. Catharines. Award winning Chef Andrew McLeod's menu features dishes to reflect Canadian cuisine, with his inspiration ranging from PEI to Northern Ontario to British Columbia. Seafood, including oysters, is delivered fresh from both the east and west coasts, cheeses from Ontario and Quebec, produce from the Niagara region. The beverage list accents some of the best wines from Niagara, craft beers and signature craft cocktails. Large paintings adorn the walls, with local artists rotating their pieces every few months. The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming and with the open concept kitchen making it feel more like you are having dinner at Chef's home than in a restaurant. There is also a private dining room for special events.
