Food + Wine

World's Most Romantic Restaurants

by Lexi Dwyer


Where: Eagle's Eye, British Columbia, Canada

Why Go: When you dine at 7,700 feet, you look down—not up—at the Rockies. And being together above the clouds will leave you breathless (well, not literally, we hope).

A Side of Atmosphere: Although this rugged A-frame restaurant sits at roughly the same altitude as a low-flying jetliner, the ride up (15 minutes by gondola) is significantly more pleasant than being crammed in coach. In the main room, floor-to-ceiling windows and a classic Pacific Northwest palette (honeyed timber, rugged stone, clean lines) let the view steal the show.

Appetite for Seduction: To find fodder for his straightforward, seasonal menus, Chef Alain Soret culls the provinces for their best ingredients: BC coho salmon, Québec duck liver, Alberta beef, and Rocky Mountain bison.

The Hot Seat: Although the panorama looks lovely from every part of the room, tables 36 and 37 are closest to the fireplace.
