In Calgary, nothing says opulence like Parkerhouse. Impressive blown-glass chandeliers light up a décor that includes zebra mahogany paneled walls and chairs you can really sink into. Guests are greeted at the mezzanine level and are then filtered into either the dining room or the lounge, which often features a live jazz trio.
More than Boston Baked Beans
Brought to Calgary by the same people that developed Tribune and Murrietas, the Parkerhouse menu is an homage to its New England namesake. Boston baked beans are, of course, on the menu, along with a crab boil, Atlantic lobster and even sloppy Joes for lunch. While not a steakhouse, executive chef Andrew Keen has instated an in depth beef program that includes nine different steaks. This includes cuts from the internationally renowned Diamond Willow Ranch, which offers cattle organic grain feed, and a free range to graze on with a mountain backdrop.
Something to Wine About
Parkerhouse’s lounge is a functioning wine bar that features an impressive selection of wine available by the glass. They use the Eurocave system, which is a special wine preservation technology that removes oxygen from the bottle and serves wine by a pressurized pump. Each glass served tastes as though it is from a newly opened bottle.
