Renamed restaurant starts afresh
It is all change at The Terrace on Front Street, which is boasting a new look and menu after being renamed and remodelled.
The business, at 55 Front Street, was formerly known as Red Steakhouse and Bar. It is now being run solely by Douglas Olson, and he has put his vision into the new look.
It has a lighter and brighter interior, there are fresh herbs growing in a few spots, and an impressive, large, harbour-view mural has been painted on the curving wall that leads into the restaurant.
Mr Olson said the business is also committed to hiring locals. As the restaurant was undergoing its transformation four locals joined the team, while three guest workers departed.
He and his father Rick were the joint partners of Red Steakhouse, but when the time came to take the business in a new direction, Mr Olson bought out his father to take full control and set about turning his concept into reality.
He was inspired by some of the things he saw in the US. When asked what that means for The Terrace on Front Street, he said: “There is more brightness and light, and contemporary food that is fresh and clean.”
The menu is more inclusive than it was before, and features options suitable for those who want to avoid gluten, or those are looking for non-meat dishes.
The freshness extends to herbs, such as mint, that are grown in strategic spots within the restaurant.
The Terrace features a large patio balcony overlooking Front Street with views across Hamilton Harbour.
It took about two weeks for The Terrace to undergo its transformation to a new look and menu. During the past six months a number of new bars and restaurants have opened on Front Street, while others, including The Terrace, have undergone revamps. Mr Olson said: “Everyone is looking to do something new.”
Explaining the impetus for the change at the restaurant and bar, he said: “The [customer] demographic is changing. The Terrace is more about lunches, and happy hour and cocktails.”
