We're excited to announce our new Patio Grill Nights
at Altitudes Bistro. This nightly series is created in collaboration with award winning Chef Alex Chen, and will feature seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients grilled to perfection on a specially constructed open wood-fired grill.
The wood-fired grill is a simple yet effective design – allowing for multi-level open-fire cooking at a variety of temperatures, providing the ability to perfectly cook a wide-variety of ingredients and dishes. Utilizing wood-fire cooking is a means of connecting the food being prepared to the natural surroundings of the mountaintop. This specially constructed grill will act as the centerpiece to this series, creating a multi-sensory experience.
Beginning Thursday, August 13th, we will feature a nightly grill special in Altitudes Bistro from 4pm to 8pm daily. This rotating menu will showcase flavourful creations from the wood-fired grill on Altitudes Patio. It's the perfect pairing to an evening on the patio taking in the spectacular views. Features will change throughout the series so check out the menu online here.
