Herb & Sage

          During my reading week, I spent most of my time back home in Barrie and discovered a new restaurant that peaked my interest.  The restaurant is the only one of it's kind and was created to appeal to the healthier of appetites. 

The location of the restaurant really speaks to the character which the owner wanted to show.Located at the south end of Barrie, it allows people wanting to experience intimate dinning to just have a short drive or stroll.
When I first walked into the restaurant I was surprised with the maturity of their service staff. The hostess was friendly and was very educated with the menu. What is interesting about this particular restaurant is that every night has a chef’s special. They offer a three course meal and the chef surprises you with his choice of appetizer, entree and dessert.
The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. I found the vegetarian selections were very pronounced on the menu. The salad selection of the menu I found the most intriguing. Here is a look at the salad selections Herb and Sage offers, each of which can be turned into vegetarian selections: 
Beef Kebobs on Field Greens $12

  1. The food sounds really interesting, it's definitely better than the traditional McDonald's and Wendy's. the Pork Tenderloin Skewers with Greek Salad appeals to me the most and surely sounds delicious. If ever I'm in the area, I will check it out! thanks!

  2. That sounds like a really nice change. When I'm home in Newmarket over the summer I think I'll pay a visit when I go to the beach!

  3. This sounds like a really nice place. I go to Barrie occasionally to visit some friends, I should keep this place in mind next time.
