About Us

Located in East Norwich, Hunter Restaurant fuses Classic French Technique with the bold flavors and traditions of the Mediterranean. The chef driven menu, amplified by market inspired specials, transforms contemporary ingredients into modern expression.

From the high sculpted walnut ceiling to the flowing serpentine Onyx bar, the restaurant is inviting and alluring. The ambient space is designed by James Beard Award winning hospitality architects Bentel and Bentel.  This design provides the perfect backdrop for Hunter's signature classic plates.
