Courtney and Terrence Howell met while teaching in South Korea, then explored and ate their way across that country. After a sojourn in Courtney's home state of Louisiana, they travelled back to Terrence's ancestral home of Grates Cove, Newfoundland and once again, fell in love. Here, in this tiny land between the barrens and the sea, they found what they were looking for. Inspiration. Perspective. Freedom. And a place they could finally call home.  A meal at their Open Studio Restaurant is a culinary homage to the faraway places Courtney and Terrence once called home. Here, you'll find Creole cuisine served with an Asian twist. Classic Cajun flavours, effortlessly reimagined with fresh, local seafood and seasonal greens hand-foraged from the landscape. Old flavours and distinct cultures that, when put together, taste like home.
