Have you heard of Canyon Creek? Who hasn’t right? Well I’ve been there before and enjoyed it – but because there are so many restaurants in the city, it just isn’t one that I would go to regularly. Recently, this has changed. They have found the key to my heart: wine Thursdays. Every Thursday night, Canyon Creek offers $25 bottles of wine on 50% of their wine list. The beauty of this deal for wine lovers is that we can enjoy a bottle that would normally cost $65 for only $25. Pair this with a mouth-watering steak and you’ve got yourself a perfect (and affordable) evening.
Last Thursday, Valerie Stachurski and I needed girl catch up time – and this girl can drink her wine… so she was the perfect date to bring for dinner at Canyon Creek while also enjoying a little too much wine. This is exactly what we did. I will say this: most people don’t realize just how delicious, fresh and creative the food is at Canyon Creek. We enjoyed yummy appetizers all of which had a special CC twist. The lobster rolls, which I love, were made a little differently than what we’re used to. A luscious butter sauce covers huge chunks of fresh lobster sitting on a soft bun, soaking it with that much more flavour. Delicious. And the steaks were divine. Yes, I have been known to crave a nice filet mignon on some occasions and on those days I usually end up at the Keg with my best friend Sam, who is also a rare steak lover. I can guarantee that next time the craving sets in, we’ll be visiting Canyon Creek instead. They cooked the deliciously tender steaks to perfection and the quality was excellent. At a very affordable price to boot – you gotta love that!
I’m not one to love or promote chain style restaurants. However, while Canyon Creek is a chain, it really has an individual feel to it that makes it very cozy and comfortable. The food is top quality and innovative and the service is excellent. Add all that to $25 wine bottles? Yep, you’ll be seeing me there on Thursdays more often than not!
