A quick update on Paramount, it looks to me they are open. They took over the Falls n Firkin location. Here is a photo of the outside of the restaurant I grabbed from their website.

Here is some more in-depth information from the local paper about the new brewery on Clifton Hill.  Sounds like it will be quite large.  Also, it’s nice to see they are finally removing the Pile Driver, which has been sitting idle for too long.

brewing company

Falls Avenue Resort will be launching a new restaurant experience – The Niagara Brewing Company. This will be the first craft brewery in the immediate area, and has brew master Gord Slater at the helm. I’m sure this will be a hit; the menu focuses on a few items like appetizers, tacos, and sliders.

Good morning everyone. I hope you are enjoying a fun Easter with your family. Even if you don’t celebrate Easter, go ahead and have some good chocolate :-)

I’ve been away for more than two weeks in Florida on a much needed vacation. It has been awesome! We went to Disney, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and just generally enjoyed the sun and warmth. We’re still not home yet, but it seems that there is snow at home?! Sigh :-(

I apologize once again for my lack of posting. It has been a very busy winter for me. I’m starting to see the light at the end of this, so I hope to be back to regular blogging soon. Thanks so much to Dan for posting some in my absence.

Paramount Fine Foods, a Middle Eastern franchise restaurant, will be opening soon in Niagara Falls. Based on the address, it looks like it will be taking over the space in the Fallsview Casino where the Falls and Firkin is/was.

Has anyone tried their food?

From the Toronto Star:

The thunder of the waterfall roared in his bones, but Will Gadd kept climbing.

Moments later, along with Sarah Hueniken, who followed him up, Gadd completed the first-ever ice climb of Niagara Falls, a feat that earned the champion climbers praise and attention from around the world.

“This is absolutely the highlight of my career to date … This is history from a straight-up climbers’ perspective,” Gadd, 47, told the Star in a phone interview Friday, three days after the 46-metre climb up the frozen spray on the east side of the fabled Horseshoe Falls.

“It is the most well-known and wildest and largest (by volume of water) waterfall in the world. As an ice climber, it doesn’t really get any bigger than that, you know? I’m pretty psyched on that one.”
