Chef Jesse Vergen, Top Chef Canada Finalist

Chef Jesse, New Brunswick, Canada
Saint John Ale House

There’s nothing typical about the cuisine at Saint John Ale House. Chef Jesse Vergen has made it his life’s passion to bring the fresh flavours of New Brunswick to the forefront of the local dining scene and he’s doing it one dish at a time at this popular port city gastropub. Chef Jesse has made his mark by utilizing New Brunswick’s untapped bounty of small farms and fishermen, and his inventive menus at Saint John Ale House are perfectly accented by locally sourced produce, meats and fish. From the giant Bay of Fundy lobster roll featured on Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here! to the salad greens fresh from his own garden, the progressive pub food at Saint John Ale House is best enjoyed with a seat on the waterfront patio and cold pint of New Brunswick craft beer!
