The Nest – Nait’s Hidden Gem
So NAIT has one of the best culinary programs and that means that the resto-bar should be fabulous right? Right!
It is your typical gastro-pub setup and decor. Newly renovated. Very cozy, with some pool tables and dart boards. Your menus are already at the table and you seat yourself.
I am a huge beer fanatic and along with some local micro-breweries (Alley Kat) they had one of my favourites on tap which is a Belgian White that pairs well with just about anything, Shock Top.
The menu is imaginative and innovative. I had the Crawfish Corndog which was shrimp and crawfish sausage in a sweet corn batter served with fiery mustard dip. I had a side of soup (potato bacon chowder). Very tasty!
The only drawback to going to The Nest on a regular basis is that there is no free parking. What you pay will vary on the time of day that you are at the restaurant.
