A long-time Canmore classic for its hearty, house-made fare, Crazyweed’s globally inspired flavours (think pan-seared Arctic char in rich lemongrass-coconut broth) are the perfect chaser to a day of vigorous outdoor activity.

Park Distillery Restaurant + Bar
The vibe at this Banff hot spot is rustic-cozy-vintage-National Park-kitschy-fun and the menu follows suit, serving up rotisserie chicken with “campfire drippins gravy” and a “Picnic in the Park” share plate with Alberta charcuterie and wildflower honey.

Helmed by Swiss-born chef Hans Sauter, The Post delivers alpine fine dining at its finest, with entrees of Alberta-raised beef, bison and lamb — even a Northwest Territories caribou striploin — expertly paired with wines from the Lake Louise hotel’s vast and celebrated cellar.
