Chuck's Favorite Eats: St. John's

Find out where to eat on Water Street in St. John's, Newfoundland.

St. John's Water Street

The easternmost city in North America, St. John's, Newfoundland, sits right where Arctic currents meet the warm Gulf Stream. That combination produces some nasty weather, the greatest fishing ground the world has ever known and some killer restaurants, all located on Water Street.

Aqua

Chuck's first stop is Aqua, a seafood restaurant owned and recently transformed by Chef Mark McCrowe; he and his team aim to serve great food and drink with a down-to-earth approach.

See Food

Chuck prepares to chow down on one of Chef Mark's signature dishes: baked speckled trout stuffed with shrimp and topped with lemon-caper beurre noisette and lobster meat.

Ink-Off    

Mark may cook some of the best seafood dishes in St. John's, but when it comes to tattoos, Chuck can't resist a throwdown.

Raymonds

Chef Jeremy Charles blends rustic and refined at Raymonds, voted one of Canada's best restaurants.

Real Men Wear Aprons    

Donning their brown leather aprons, both Chuck and Jeremy command respect. 

Happy As a Clam (or Scallop)

Chef Jeremy places his pan-seared diver scallops and parsnip puree in a beautiful scallop shell, then drizzles the dish with sea urchin beurre blanc.

The Ship Pub

It's back to basics Newfie-style at The Ship Pub, where Chef Dianne Glass makes moose bourguignon with toutons (a traditional fried-bread pancake).

Real Men Wear Aprons?

Chuck might have gotten a little too carried away with the trying-on-other-chefs'-aprons thing. Chef Dianne isn't quite sure he pulls it off.

Blue On Water

The last stop is restaurant and boutique hotel Blue on Water, where Chuck meets ninth-generation Newfoundlander Jason Brake for tea — tea made with fish.

St. John's Harbour

Jason Brake takes Chuck away from Water Street and down to the real Canadian waters for a ride on his fishing boat in St. John's Harbour.

Newfound Appreciation 

Chuck enjoys the scenic boat ride along St. John's coastline as Jason plays the part of the tour guide.

St. Patrick's Day Cheesecake

St. Patrick’s day is a time to turn everything green in honor of the Irish Saint. This creamy cheesecake with festive green stripes is perfect to serve after corned beef, cabbage and a Guinness. Using fresh mint makes the rich cake as bright in flavor as it is in appearance.
