It's Lunch Time at Naramata Inn

Updated: Aug 22, 2020

For Immediate  Release:

August 13, 2020


Featuring Best in Harvest Salads, Composed Plates, and Cheese + Charcuterie Boards

Naramata, B.C. You asked. We’re delivering. In response to the many, and much appreciated, requests for more of Chef Ned Bell’s take on Naramatian cuisine, we are opening our dining room doors for lunch. The menu will also feature an extensive by-the-glass wine menu highlighting some of the most interesting pours from the Naramata Bench and Okanagan Valley.

Dinner service at the restaurant, which opened on June 29, has proved to be one of the hottest reservations in the Okanagan, and opening for lunch will allow more visitors to the Naramata Bench to sample Chef Bell’s hyper-local, sustainable menu that focuses on the best of the Okanagan Valley, and British Columbian ingredients. 

Available from 11:30am to 1:30pm, seven days a week, lunch highlights include:

  • Unearthed Farms tomatoes + Tanto Latte Okanagan burrata

  • Jordan’s summer beans + Rosebank Farms chicken

  • Great Bear scallops with of-the-moment stone fruit

  • Cheese and charcuterie boards featuring local cheeses, cured meats, spreads, breads and more.  

  • Lamb and beef burger with organic apricot and sweet + sour summer squash.  

Lunch service will be offered through late September. Reservations can be made online or via phone by calling Naramata Inn at 718.514.5444.

The late June restaurant launch followed the reopening of the Naramata Inn's boutique accommodations earlier in the month. The 112-year-old Inn holds a special place in Naramata’s history, and new owners Ned Bell, Kate Colley, Paul Hollands and Maria Wiesner are honoured to contribute to its story.
