Chef Randy Feltis of TV’s Cityline Opens PIE and The Lakehouse on Lake Rosseau, Muskoka
Crispy trout. Beef Tenderloin. PEI oysters. Eggs Benedict with house made hollandaise sauce. Comfort food with a view of the lake is the theme of The Lakehouse, one of two fresh new eateries coming to Muskoka’s iconic Clevelands House.
The Lakehouse replaces C.J. Minett’s Kitchen and Tavern at Clevelands House, part of a multi-million-dollar makeover underway now at the resort on Lake Rosseau that will debut in the Summer of 2017.
Founder Chef Randy Feltis says “The Lakehouse will follow a few simple rules: fresh fare, heartily cooked, with zero processing.”
On the water, PIE Wood Fired Pizza Joint will be a welcome addition to the Boathouse at Cleves. Its third Muskoka location, PIE has a dedicated and growing group of followers among foodies and pizza lovers.
“It’s pretty simple,” says Feltis, who is also Guest Chef on TV’s Cityline. “We will make everything in-house at PIE and The Lakehouse, from our pizza dough to our maple crème brulee. Our aim at both locations is to feed you well, offer you a fun time, and make you feel at home and comfortable.”
“Good food, good times, and great views…”
“We just love this place,” says PIE co-founder Craig Russell. “Clevelands House is the ideal spot for our kind of relaxed food and welcoming brand of service.”
Russell’s background in catering, event management and the wedding business is a natural fit for the resort.
“We are thrilled to have Craig and Randy on board” says Greg Knight, VP of Development at the Muskoka landmark hotel. “These guys have a great track record creating amazing places to eat and drink. I have no doubt their hard working team will add an amazing element to the overall guest experience here at Cleves.”
Watch for grand opening celebrations this Victoria Day weekend.
