Not Your Typical Hotel Eatery – Thomsons Re-open

There has been no more anticipated hotel restaurant re-opening in recent memory than that of Thomsons located, in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, downtown Calgary.

The new motorized partition allows the restaurant to take on a more intimate setting.

Having recently been renovated, I had the pleasure of dining in Thomsons the other evening and believe me Thomsons is not your typical hotel eatery.

Now, in a striking dining room awash in brown mohair upholstery, rich wood panels that grace the walls, accented with distinctive western art, the guests and residents of Calgary have a fitting place to hobnob.

The walls are adorn with Western Canadian pieces of art by JoAnne Meeker.

Chef Darren Keogh is dedicated to preparing unforgettable dishes with a global flair by using the freshest, locally-sourced ingredients from regional farmers and ranchers. Thomsons is returning with a commitment to an inspirationally driven dinner menu that promises new, original culinary options every week. An emphasis on free-range culinary delights means guests can expect only the freshest local and sustainable products available.

As you drink in the elegant ambiance of Thomsons decor and look out onto the historic Stephen Avenue walk you will enjoy Chef Darren’s outstanding, not to be missed dishes, such as Beef Cheeks and the Ocean Wise Sturgeon, then top off your meal with an adult sundae to rival the best ice cream parlors in North America
