Juniper Bistro, Banff, Alberta

When my best friends won a skiing trip to Panorama, Juniper was the hotel I recommended.  Winter or summer, the setting is spectacular. Elk and coyotes gravitate to the wildlife corridor behind our hotel because it is on the sunny side of the valley—the same decadent warmth and dazzling sunsets that have attracted humans for thousands of years. The wall-to-wall glass at the Juniper Bistro looks out over one of the most renowned vistas in North America in Banff National Park.   It should have come as no surprise that writer/friend Julie Van Rosendaal (@DinnerwithJulie) also sang the praises of this lovely property’s food.  Local dominates…even to the nicely curated B.C. wine list.  Dinner may range from duck breast with lentils and mushroom ragout to grilled Alberta ribeye.  Scallops are served with bacon which is, in reality Valbella Meat’s speck. Valbella has been an institution in the region for as long as I’ve been writing.
