Profile Last Updated: June 02, 2008
This restaurant combines a historic atmosphere with fine food. They are located in the former A.E. Cross house. Built in 1891, it is now a designated heritage site. Situated on the Bow River in Inglewood, Rouge offers a number of dining experiences in various rooms. During the warmer months from June through to August, Rouge customers can dine in the garden area which covers six city lots. Private parties are welcome to book space in one of their magnificent rooms.
You won’t find anything ordinary at Rouge. Their menu is diverse and tasty, and brings together the best local ingredients that are both natural and fresh. Begin your meal with one of their starters, choose from the likes of the seared scallop and oxtail or the seared foie gras. There are a number of soups and salads available and your main course may consist of elegant meals like the guinea hen “pot pie” or perhaps the ostrich medallions or the rosti and marjoram crème fraiche.
If you have enough room after your meal, you’ll want to be sure and try out one of the desserts that the chef here has dreamed up. There is the chocolate diablo crème brulée or the tasting of domestic and imported cheese. Complete it with their Illy espresso or a black tea. These folks have an extensive wine list from which you can purchase beverages by the glass or by the bottle.
