Murrieta’s is a perennial Stephen Avenue Walk favourite for business lunches, but if you’re working late or have an after-work client to wine and dine, you can’t go wrong at this casually elegant spot in the historic Alberta Hotel Building. Score big bison brownie points by treating your client or date to a succulent marinated Alberta bison sirloin served with roasted fingerling potatoes, apple and herb emulsion, arugula and a shaved-Parmesan salad.
There’s no more convivial place in which to celebrate a well-done deal than at Murrieta’s, located in the historic Alberta Hotel Building on Stephen Avenue. Celebrate modestly with a bottle of economically priced Prosecco, or spectacularly with a $400-plus bottle of Champagne.
Situated in the lovely old Alberta Hotel, Murrieta’s shaded second-floor outdoor patio overlooks busy Stephen Avenue Walk in summer. On the casual side of contemporary fine dining, this hopping downtown restaurant and lounge is a great spot to unwind. At lunchtime, enjoy a glass of wine or a pint of ale, a lamb burger or a marguerite flatbread, and just watch the world stroll by.
