Creole & French Cajun Influences
Our philosophy has always been to use the best local ingredients to showcase what the region has to offer. Port 53 is a true harbor of local food, boutique wines, top shelf spirits and craft beers. Chef owner Adam Mitchell, with help from his dedicated team, have worked hard to create a restaurant that appeals to everyone with a fantastic range of food and beverages and positioned in a great location. Adam’s aim was to create a restaurant that he and his family would enjoy dining at themselves, and he has achieved that in spades. Adam trained in classical French Cuisine whilst at William Angliss Institute in the 90s, and later followed his wife Rebecca back to Canada. Adam gravitated towards a love for the French Creole-Cajun style of food whilst working in a Creole inspired restaurant in Saskatoon Canada. Canada has a shaded history with Cajun cuisine through the deportation of the French Arcadians from Canada to Louisiana in the 1700s, and this vibrant past still has an influence in Canada’s cuisine today. Like the Creole and Cajun culture itself, Port 53 uses what is seasonably available to create soul food that is both comforting and exciting at the same time. Signature dishes include a spicy ‘low-country boil’ along with a selection of char grilled local meats accompanied with delicious sauces and spice blends. Port 53 offers a unique industrial chic atmosphere with a décor of local memorabilia. Port 53 is a true example of Creole and Cajun culture by utilizing local and regional foods and cooking them with love.
