The 2017 tourism season is underway and there are many changes to the restaurant scene of Norther Door County! New restaurants, new locations, and new management bring fresh new flavors to an already booming industry!

In Sister Bay, Chop and Pasta Vino played “musical chairs” with their locations. Chop has a brand new, big, red restaurant located downtown in Sister Bay. Featuring expanded indoor and outdoor seating, views of Sister Bay, and the fantastic menu they are famous for! Pasta Vino has moved into the old Chop location in the Country Walk Shops on top of the Sister Bay hill. Regular guests to Pasta Vino may recall that this is the original location, before the restaurant took a tour of the county (formerly in Ellison Bay and recently Bailey’s Harbor).

The former Inn at Kristofers, Boathouse by the Bay feature east coast style cuisine and a laid back atmosphere. With an upstairs bar and large patio over looking the marina of Sister Bay, it will quickly become a favorite hang out spot and place to enjoy the sunset!

Egg Harbor has a new cheese factory and shop, Door Artisan Cheese. Take a tour of the factory and see the cheese making process from vat to deli. After, try the wares in the Glacier Ledge Restaurant on site or buy some cheese to take home from the Cave Market! Serendipity has moved into the old Trio location. The chef-inspired menu feature organic, farm-fresh ingredients, grass fed beef, and sustainable seafood!

From the folks behind Chives in Bailey’s Harbor, comes Barringer’s, in the former home of the Summertime restaurant in Fish Creek. Named after the original owner Jacob Barringer, it’s in one of the oldest buildings in Fish Creek. Barringer’s brings you a combination of a traditional supper club with a steakhouse experience. The restaurant will offer prime dry aged steaks, seafood, local ingredients, craft beer and cocktails in a renovated bar. Outdoor dining. Serving lunch and dinner peak season.

New to Ephraim, is Trixie’s! A small place off the Ephraim shore to enjoy interesting wines and beautiful light bites brought to you by the chefs of Wickman House. You’ll also find craft beers and healthy non-alcoholic beverages. Perfect for after the beach, or as a break from shopping!

A Bailey’s Harbor favorite, the Door County Brewing Company, will soon be moving to their new a very big location downtown Bailey’s Harbor. Until then, they will still be featuring concerts, food trucks, and great craft beer at their old location!
