Quinte West, Ontario, July 19, 2016 – Today, Nineteen Restaurant + Bar, situated on the 18th hole of the Bay of Quinte Golf & Country Club, Old Highway 2, celebrates its official grand opening.
The vision of owner Roger Lichty, Nineteen Restaurant + Bar is just one of many projects that were part of a major reconstruction of the Bay of Quinte Golf and Country Club. The construction, which started more than six years ago when Roger purchased the golf course and its surrounding property, included moving the current Club House to the north side of Old Highway 2, 1km West of Wallbridge-Loyalist Road.
Open year-round, Nineteen is a full service restaurant and bar that serves lunch and dinner. The lunch menu offers a lighter fare suitable for golfers, the business community or anyone who wants to enjoy light and delicious lunch specialties, served promptly. At dinner, Nineteen serves a fine up-market menu featuring memorable international cuisine, complimented with fine wines, and using locally grown produce, locally grown beef and poultry, artisan hand crafted breads and locally produced cheeses.
“It’s not just for golfers, although they will enjoy sitting on the beautiful patio enjoying a glass of wine and a tasty lunch after a round,” says Roger Lichty, owner. “It’s been an exciting project that many have been anticipating for quite some time. I want to thank all the businesses who supported the construction project, including Bel-Con Design Engineering Ltd., MacInroy-Maines Construction Ltd., Business Development Bank of Canada, Pace Design, Hollandale Landscaping & Garden Centre Ltd.”.
Executive Chef Chris Harvey has designed a menu that features only the freshest and locally sourced ingredients. “The menu is traditional food but with modern flare. We use good local ingredients and have relationships with local suppliers and farms. The menu includes something for everyone whether it be chicken wings or duck confit.” says Chris Harvey.
Nineteen is now open seven days a week, 11am to 9pm.
