Since late December, Maryse Berube and John Sutherland are now the new managers of the McLure Restaurant on Highway 5.
Maryse (who is known in the area for her PJ’s Restaurant in Barriere back in 2000) says for the past seven years she has been doing catering and cooking in fire camps. Now she is back in the area and most excited about setting up a restaurant in a place she calls home.
And home is what she says her cooking is all about. “Good homemade cooking, homemade baking, cinnamon buns, homemade soups and daily specials,” says Maryse; a chef who has always believed in making the best things to eat from scratch. “I make my own salad dressings, hamburger sauce and tartar sauce,, and we offer specials daily such as veal cutlets, homemade cabbage rolls, chicken parmesan, steak and shrimp, turkey dinner and more.”
Maryse says they have spent a lot of time cleaning up and renovating the building, including the floors, ceilings, countertops and of course painting. The restaurant has a private dining room which is also available for meetings, and future plans are in the works to have a small convenience store on site as well.
Maryse says turkey dinner is the special every Sunday evening, and this Sunday, Feb. 1, Sunday Brunch buffets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will be held every week.
The McLure Restaurant is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. They can be reached by calling 250-672-5163.
“Come on in for some great Valentine’s Day specials,” says Maryse, “We look forward to serving you.”
