Concierge.com's insider take:
For those who like their comfort food with a creative twist, chef Paul MacNish dishes up contemporary Australian fare in this upscale hotel restaurant, located in the historic downtown. Try his Alberta beef fillet with crushed potatoes, wild mushroom marmalade, spinach, and a red winejus. A lighter choice is the lime-cured Atlantic salmon with a soy beurre blanc. The excellent desserts include a honey and saffron crème brûlée with palm-sugar biscuits. The stately dining room is furnished in early 1900s style, with china-filled wooden cabinets and elaborate window treatments.
