Is it time to kick the relationship up a notch? Or perhaps add a little zip to your evening and finish with breakfast? Here three hotel restaurants to try.
The menu changes frequently, but expect to indulge in the likes of frogs legs with watercress coulis, striped bass with clams, mussels and caramelized endive and honey-peanut butter-yuzu nougat before strolling upstairs to one of the Kensington Riverside Inn’s sumptuous rooms. Follow that a few hours later with lemon ricotta pancakes and fresh berries (if you’re up before 1 p.m., that is) to complete the circle.

A drive to Lake Louise, a little skiing or snowshoeing and then dinner at the Post. What could be better than a fondue by the fire and wine from The Post’s list? – one of the best in Canada. Only a night in one of the lovely rooms and a hearty breakfast the next morning in the loggy, lodgy dining room.

Raw Bar by Duncan Ly
Which first? The cocktails or the food at Raw Bar? Perhaps a simultaneous indulgence of cocktails under the supervision of supreme mixologist Christina Mah, spicy tuna and salmon tartare by chef Jinhee Lee and Vietnamese coffee tart by pastry chef Karine Moulin. Then up to a room in Hotel Arts, under your own supervision. Then breakfast in Yellow Door, the hotel’s stylish bistro.
