Terra, an alternate word for Earth, is a fitting name for Jasper’s new eatery inside The Crimson hotel. Part of the Pursuit collection, the restaurant is inspired by the natural beauty and rawness of Jasper National Park — and this inspiration is reflected in everything from Terra’s thoughtfully designed space to its intriguing regional dishes and spirits.

With its chic, wood-forward decor, mountain views and airy feel, Terra is meant to be a place for people to gather, relax and connect after a day of outdoor adventuring. The restaurant features traditional tables for small groups, as well as a large, wooden harvest dining table, centre-stage, for mixing and mingling between strangers. There’s also a lovely patio for those who prefer to dine outdoors.

As for the food, executive chef Tyler Tays and his team incorporate regionally farmed and foraged ingredients in their dishes whenever possible, paying close attention to availability and adapting the menu seasonally. Among the standouts on the dinner menu is the shared, whole trout plate, which features fresh trout (sourced from Calgary), wild rice, capers, brown butter and lemon, as well as fiddleheads, which are found growing near rivers throughout Jasper National Park. Another must-try is the bone marrow (sourced from Red Deer), with chanterelles, confit shallots and sourdough parsley salad topped with dandelions picked right in town.

The cocktails at Terra are just as creative and regionally focused as the food, with a variety of “mountain-inspired” options to choose from, including the refreshing Subalpine Lemonade, which features Epitaph Blue Gin, blueberries, juniper berries, lemon juice and simple syrup.
