Row House Lobster Co.
146 Richmond St., Victoria Row
Charlottetown, PEI, Canada
We visited this place because of a friend’s recommendation, thankfully it was a good one. This was our first evening in Charlottetown and I was very excited to try some of the local food. We walked to Richmond St, Victoria Row, the restaurants still had their outdoor lighting, this certainly aided with our decision to eat outside. The air was a little cool but refreshing, blankets were available if needed (we did not avail of them) the ambiance was enhanced by the lantern lighting in the trees. (It is also important to note that the lantern lighting enticed us further to try this restaurant, and so did the propane heaters)
I scanned the menu for some time, trying to select something special for my very first night in Prince Edward Island. I decided on the cioppino, the description of the dish was very appealing, after all, I was in a seafood town. To be honest I am not a huge fan of shellfish, but this seafood stew had a fantastic balance of lobster, halibut, mussels, and haddock, and….it did have a nice kick to it. It was one of the best seafood dishes I have ever had!! The layering of flavors, the choice of seafood and a tomato based broth was delicious. Even as I write, my taste buds tingle it was that good.
During my stay in PEI, I quickly discovered that Charlottetown is a quaint, safe and inviting city with much to offer a visitor; food and ambiance is no exception.
