The Inn on the Square is a revamped hotel with a contemporary edge and a restaurant that is all about prime protein cooked over coals. The dining room is light, bright and casual, with a view into the kitchen and murals depicting where on the beast the cuts of meat come from. There's ambition in the delivery of first course caramelised scallops with 'textures' of cauliflower, shards of maple-cured bacon and cider reduction, while the steaks are served straight up and cooked just right (apparently they're cooked in the water bath before being finished on the grill). Rotisserie chicken and salmon with brown shrimps are alternatives to the red meat.
