New Openings: Port 229, New Location & Menu
Port 229 Artisan Bistro launched a brand new menu to coincide with the opening of their new location in Port Credit. You won't have to go far to find the new space, as they've moved right next door into what was formerly Il Pescatore Ristorante. You can expect the same great chef and menu concept, and you can read more on executive chef Dialo Kinghorn.
What is Port 229 Artisan Bistro unique for?
Port 229 continues to create authentic, homemade dishes made with fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.
"We're known for our local, fresh products and we shop at local markets, including the local farmers markets in Port Credit and Square One, A.J. Lanzarotta just down the street and the local Asian markets. We go to Black Angus to pick up our steaks. We are a local restaurant and we try to be as local as possible by shopping local" says Kinghorn.
Port 229 also carries a fine selection of wines and even boasts a sommelier who hosts wine tasting events for customers.
The Braised Beef Short Ribs are the top seller at Port 229. "[The dish] is seasoned with fresh cracked black pepper, kosher salt and braised with carrots, celery, onion, garlic, fresh herbs, Merlot and a demi-glace which is slow cooked in the oven for three hours," says Kinghorn. "It's so soft and tender; you don't even need a knife to cut into it. It's like butter. It comes with sour cream, mashed potatoes, French beans, freshly shaved horse radish and the natural braising jus is turned into a sauce for it. All made from scratch."
Signature Dish - Beef Short Ribs
