Where Canada’s Best New Restaurants is an annual award program that recognizes the top new dining destinations across the country. Where magazine’s editors deliberate at the end of each year to nominate an outstanding restaurant from their region.

At Where Canadian Rockies/Banff Dining Guide, we had the pleasure to choose the Best New Restaurant of 2015 in the Canadian Rockies, and we were thrilled to give the award to Park Distillery.

Park Distillery is one of the most ambitious restaurants ever to open in the Canadian Rockies. This ‘alpine hut’ on Banff’s main street boasts a wood-fired grill and rotisserie—and Banff’s first liquor-producing stills. Some of Park’s campfire-inspired cuisine is infused or marinated with spirits distilled in-house, including vodka made from glacier water and sustainably farmed Alberta grain.

Popular dishes include the charred AAA T-bone, lamb chops, baby back ribs and mahi mahi fish tacos. Park Distillery has two bars, a fireplace and two patios with mountain views. There’s also a retail store where liquor and merchandise is sold. Free still tours run daily.
