But fortunately, these meetings can be made a little brighter with the help of good food in a great atmosphere. So to make some budget discussions a little more palatable, we decided to go to Fergus & Bix in downtown Canmore.
The excellent food at Fergus & Bix softened the work-y-ness of a lunchtime meeting.
This was my first time visiting Fergus & Bix since it opened its Canmore location this spring. The restaurant boasts everything craft, from craft beer to craft food and all the care it takes to create a well crafted meal. The newly renovated space has comfortable seating and great staff. We cozied up by the window overlooking Main Street and got down to business – the business of looking at the menu, of course.
The restaurant has a great selection of appetizers, homemade soups, salads, and entrees. Given our lunchtime scheduling, we were all feeling burgers. The Big Easy chicken burger, the Forage Burger, and the Fergus & Bix Burger all graced the table with an assortment of sides. Each burger comes with a choice of two sides, so fries were had alongside salads and mixed veggies, all of which were crispy, fresh, and delicious as they accompanied our meals.
They had a great looking selection of beer too. But we were working, so we decided to stick to water. No sense getting too comfortable while making big decisions.
We carried on our business, discussing the upcoming Where Canadian Rockies, Where Calgary, Dining Guides, Maps, Mountain Real Estate, and all the products we have on the table. We looked at schedules, at budgets, and we made some decisions. We all agreed the restaurant was a great place to have these discussions and the excellent food softened the work-y-ness of our lunchtime meeting.
At the end of the day, Fergus & Bix was a great choice for lunch. The staff was amazing, the food was great, and the atmosphere was comfortable and inviting.
