Tucked inside the Delta Banff Royal Canadian Lodge, away from Banff’s busy crowds, is a culinary treasure waiting to be discovered. Featuring a menu that celebrates locally sourced ingredients, the Evergreen Restaurant and Lounge — with its open concept kitchen and inviting fireplace — is an elegant yet approachable spot to satisfy your cravings.
The Best of Alberta
Executive Chef Max Charbonneau and his culinary team make almost everything in-house from scratch using locally sourced Alberta ingredients wherever possible. From housemade soups and stocks to handmade pasta and sauces, transforming regional ingredients into memorable entrées is what the Evergreen does best.
Local favourites include the Caesar salad topped with poached egg and white marinated anchovies, followed by the pan seared elk medallions, served with fresh wild mushrooms, pomme anna, port wine and shallots reduction. For a lighter option, the delicate yet satisfying Yukon Arctic char never disappoints and vegetarian and vegan options include housemade truffle fettuccini, garden creamy risotto and a hearty vegan stew. The mouth-watering Royal Canadian Lodge Burger is a favourite for lunch.
The Evergreen Restaurant’s weekly specials are hard to resist. Available Monday to Thursday, the three-course Elk Short Rib Dinner includes a choice of soup or salad followed by tender Alberta elk short ribs served with roasted garlic Yukon gold potato puree, port wine and veal jus reduction and seasonal vegetables, finished with Chef’s dessert of the day. On the weekends, don’t miss the Surf & Turf dinner special. This culinary pleaser features soup or salad to start, followed by a charbroiled AAA Alberta top sirloin, fresh Canadian lobster tail, potatoes, fresh vegetables and a classic bearnaise sauce, all topped off with Chef’s dessert of the day. After a cold day outdoors the Cheese Fondue for Two — with a glass of wine from our extensive Canadian and international wine list — is the perfect indulgence.
Adjacent to the restaurant is the Evergreen Lounge, open daily from 11:00 a.m. The lounge is a quiet spot to relax and enjoy a cocktail or a glass of Canadian wine or beer with a light snack. The Charcuterie Platter — featuring Valbella’s cured bison, housemade pate, smoked duck breast, assorted artisan cheese and served with grainy mustard, olives and fresh grilled baguette — is a popular choice.
