Tucked in between the shops and services at Main Street and King Edward, The Locus is far from your average eatery. With no specific ethnic background, the restaurant calls its cuisine West Coast Ethnic Fusion and it features a few menu items you won’t find anywhere else but here. The Locus serves exotic proteins including obscure choices like kangaroo, frog’s legs and rattlesnake. You’ll also find rare game like venison, buffalo and elk depending on their availability. Another 35 per cent of the menu is made up of great tasting vegetarian selections and The Locus is well known for having some of the best desserts in town, including a number of yummy crumbles, cheesecakes, cream pies and a deep dish apple pie.
Just Like Home
A menu this varied and different ensure dining at the Locus is like no other restaurant experience. Some of the food may be a little out of the average persons comfort zone, but the décor is certainly not. A welcoming and inviting 85-person dining room, The Locus is designed to make everyone feel at home. There’s room for everyone with 20 extra seats at the bar and another 16 on the patio outside.
Try Something New
The restaurant is fully licenced, offering a wide variety of wines on an extensive wine list and you’ll find just about every liquor imaginable at the bar, including a vast array of different whiskeys. If you are looking for something a little different, you may want to head elsewhere, The Locus is a lot different, but definitely worth the trip to Main and King Ed to try something new.
