5 Reasons Solstice Seasonal Cuisine Is A True Edmonton Gem


Alright, so full disclosure, I know these guys personally. And they. Are. Awesome.

All bias aside, they have these incredible Edmonton restaurants, and their reviews prove it, so don’t take my word for it. This is a true gem, showcasing local industry talent, and giving Edmonton a taste of fine dining in a laid-back and unpretentious atmosphere. If you aren’t already convinced, here are five solid reasons you need to move date night to Solstice:

  1. It’s an award-winning restaurant….

Sliding in at second place in Avenue’s Best Overall category for best restaurants in 2017, and one of 13 Edmonton restaurants named on OpenTable’s 150 best hidden gems in Canada, Solstice is getting praise from more than just its regulars.

  1. With an award-winning chef…

Head chef Jan Trittenbach has taken home not one, but two gold medals in the Gold Medal Plates culinary competition. His dishes are absolutely to die for. Enough said.

  1. In an intimate atmosphere…

Nestled into 124th street, Solstice has a small, intimate, and down-to-earth atmosphere. When it’s not booked out for a private function, it’s perfect for date night, or catching up with a group of friends in Edmonton restaurants.

  1. With incredible cocktails and service…

This review from Alireza Mirzaian on their Facebook page says it all:

“Everything was spot on! We really enjoyed conversing with our server, Lisa. We ordered cocktails before our menu and they were off the chart goodness!  We also learned that cocktails are offered seasonally.”

If delicious handmade cocktails aren’t your thing, they have a great selection of wine, and will help you pair a bottle perfectly with your meal.

  1. And you’ll get to try something new every time!

The “Seasonal” aspect of their Solstice is an-ever-changing menu that rotates to bring you dishes with the freshest seasonal ingredients. There’s always something new to try, and while you might be sad not to have the same dish as last time, it’s likely you’ll be able to leave with a new favourite every time.

Open Monday to Saturday for dinner, you can head to their website anytime (http://www.solsticefood.com) to book your next date night!
