There’s a lot of potential awesomeness at White Swan Public House, especially a seafood poutine topped with clams, bacon, scallions, and then basted in chowder instead of gravy. White Swan also offers free moorage if you arrive by boat, a mega-view, an ample patio from which to take in that mega-view, some really delicious-sounding fried oysters, and a rumored raw oyster happy hour. Sounds fabulous. But let me reiterate: chowder poutine. Like regular poutine, but with chowder. Genius.
