Description
Inspired our iconic Palliser Hotel history and the authenticity of the 1920s, the Rimrock Dining room invites you to try Fairmont’s genuine luxury cuisine with the taste and feel reminiscent of the ‘golden-era of travel.’ The Rimrock is open daily for breakfast and offers dinner service Thursday through Sunday evenings in a historic room revived with prohibition-themed décor. You’ll be blown away by the hand-tooled leather pillars and famous heritage fireplace. Our brand new menu created by Executive Chef, Eraj Jayawickreme, is sure to please too. Indulge in our Feta-encrusted Lamb Sirloin paired with confit shallots and warm quinoa salad, the delicious Chardonnay-brined Half Chicken or the classic and succulent Alberta Beef Tenderloin accompanied by Horseradish Pomme Puree and roasted mushrooms. The finale, house-made desserts with a modern twist will leave you wanting more, most notably, the delectable Melting Chocolate Sphere with black pepper sponge, lemon curd and raspberries.
