Pickle Jar

With a tag line like “We are the friendly casual place that serves darn good food to kind people”, you know you are in for a treat at Pickle Jar!

For appetizers, try the Dill Pickle Chicken Wings (Deep-fried chicken wings with dill seasoning) or the Dill Pickle Garlic Fingers (Dill garlic butter, sliced dill pickles, mozzarella cheese, donair dipping sauce).

For a decent main, try the Brown Butter Trout (Citrus crème fraiche, warm potato salad with sautéed vegetables, smoked garlic vinaigrette) or the Pickle Jar Burger (Beef patty, tomato jam, fried burrata, pickles, arugula, chimichurri aioli).

But save room for dessert, because the Spiced Cake with Irish Whiskey Sauce (Traditional English spice cake, decadent Irish whiskey toffee sauce) is pretty amazing!

STMR.36 BBQ and Social

STMR.36 BBQ and Social may be located inside the Delta Fredericton, but it is far from your ordinary hotel restaurant. Located right on Fredericton’s waterfront, this hip space serves up some amazing savoury eats and smoked meats that’ll have you ordering enough for leftovers, so you can enjoy if again the next day.

And if it is just drinks you are looking for, order and enjoy some creative cocktails in the relaxing atmosphere of the lobby bar.

But on to the reason for the visit. Start off with Burnt End Poutine (brisket, crispy onion strings, cheese curds, gravy), a Blooming Onion (sriracha-lime aioli), or Oh Honey Biscuits (3 buttermilk biscuits, rosemary honey butter).

For mains, try the Beef Brisket (bourbon glaze), the STMR Sausages (housemaid bratwurst or jalapeño cheddar, three links grilled), or the shareable Pit Boss Plotter (3 pit meats paired with choice of 4 fixings, served with housemade pickles and signature barbecue sauce).

You can get some pretty amazing craft cocktails and unique eats at The Provincial Lounge in Fredericton. This modern establishment sources as much local food and drink as possible.

I recommend the Potato Croquettes (fried cheesy potato, duck bacon bits, pickled red onion, romesco sauce), Scallop Risotto (brown butter seared scallops, creamy parmesan risotto), or the Pork Belly (5 spice slow-roasted pork belly, sweet potato purée, red pepper relish). If you are looking for a shareable dish, try the Chef’s Board (3 local meats, 2 local cheeses, house pickles, tomato jam, crostini, truffle honey, granny dijon, candied pecan & berries).

And wash it all down with an Anything & Everything (Pisco, Beefeater London. Dry Gin, Martini Dry, Orange, Carrot Juice, Thai Chili Syrup, Lime) or Pickwick Club (Plantation Pineapple Rum, Campari, Lillet Blanc, Basil, Citrus Cordial, Saffron Mango Bitters).
