The first thing that strikes you about Wishbone is its decor. The horizontal wood paneling is reminiscent of lounging in the belly of a clipper ship – and since Wishbone specializes in seafood entrees, the comparison seems like a no-brainer. The wood paneling is what initially drew Brayden Kozak, Wishbone's chef and co-owner, to the space. He says the location had been one of his favourite spots in the city and that it was a "dream come true" to acquire it in June 2017.

"When we were thinking of a name for the restaurant, someone mentioned we should call it Canoe, because it felt like he was in the inside of an upside down canoe," Brayden recalls. "I thought that was actually hilarious, but there was already a restaurant in Toronto called Canoe, so I didn't want to rip that."

Brayden wanted to relate the name of his restaurant with an sensation and settled on Wishbone as a reference to the euphoria one experiences after winning a wishbone breaking competition. "We wanted to give it a name that would reflect a feeling more than an idea of what we do there," Brayden says. "We were trying to find a name that didn't mean anything, but gave you a nice feeling."

    This isn't not a meal, it's an experience! It's like taking your taste buds to the worlds biggest gastronomical theme park. Who would have ever thought you could form an instant addiction for marinated chicken hearts or candied seaweed. Even my cautious husband was loving every minute of each new bite experience. No this is not the place to go for huge portions, but you will leave in the best mood.This should be a place deserving to be on your bucket list and getting checked off multiple times!

    Gastropubs: For those who like to drink and eat in Edmonton

    MRKT is located right on Jasper Avenue and 105 Street. The interior of this place is all wood, with ceiling windows. It really is beautiful on the inside. They have great prices for lunch if you want to sneak a quick pint in to get you through a slow Friday afternoon! The Alberta braised beef is one of my favourite dishes!

    Must-try tantalizing tapas in Edmonton

    A small, cozy and simple-looking restaurant, this place serves up some pretty awesome tapas. The fondue-style dish with mascarpone and leeks is pretty phenomenal. The cabbage slaw; yes please! The prosciutto di parma is divine, especially with their cambozola custard and apricot jelly. You can’t get better.

    I really appreciate what MRKT brings to the table. The food is always on point – it’s gourmet food served in a casual atmosphere. I highly recommend the cheese and charcuterie board or the roasted tomato bruschetta – both are amazing and leave you wanting more. If you’re very hungry, I recommend the boneless beef short rib – it's literally the BEST short rib I’ve ever had. The tender beef melts in your mouth and it’s served with a lovely pea risotto. I also recommend the tender and sweet maple bourbon meat balls as a homey, fulfilling meal.
