At the Fairmont Banff Springs’ newest restaurant, executive chef jW Foster’s menu features Alberta’s best meats and produce, carefully sourced from local farms and organic producers. 1888 Chop House is focused on prime (Canada‘s top grade) steaks and chops, hand cut in-house and grilled on cherry wood. There is a diverse seafood and fish selection, and inventive starches and other accompaniments. Seasonal vegetables are always in abundance.
The trendy chop house concept is juxtaposed with elements from the past, such as art and décor inspired by railway travel, and a name that evokes the hotel’s opening year. Before your meal, take a seat at the cocktail bar that overlooks the Castle in the Rockies’ lobby. The dress code is smart casual.
