Buffalo Mountain Lodge Announces The Prow
May 17, 2021 (Banff, AB) – After months of renovation imagery, teaser social media posts, and whispers of what’s to come, Buffalo Mountain Lodge in Banff is now proud to announce the launch of our bold new restaurant concept, The Prow. Buffalo Mountain Lodge is owned and operated by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts (CRMR).
The Prow will be a totally new restaurant in the award-winning Buffalo Mountain Lodge hotel on Tunnel Mountain Road. The concept is to bring guests amazing local cuisine in an approachable way, and catering to all dietary needs. The menu will include game meats, excellent shareables, and our luxe pastas made proudly in house. Guests can expect to see more variety in price points and offerings that suit all tastes.
The Prow has been working with Amanda Hamilton Interior Design, who runs an award-winning boutique design studio with expertise in commercial and residential design in Calgary and Vancouver. The design for The Prow is interpreted as bold, modern, and welcoming, with homage to the mountains surrounding it. Along with the restaurant, the renovations extend to the Lounge and Front Desk areas of the main lodge as well.
“When guests arrive, it will be a fresh new experience when they walk into the main lodge. The renovations will really be striking to return customers.”, CRMR owner Larkin O’Connor notes.
CRMR is proud to present some familiar faces, with Lance Monteiro as Chef de Cuisine at The Prow. Monteiro was the Head Chef at Cilantro Restaurant and Bar C in Calgary, both under the CRMR banner, and returns with a force in Banff to flex his expertise and creativity.
“The name for The Prow comes from its roots in climbing and skiing. Activities in the Rockies are a huge part of our lives, so it really fit the space. It refers to an overhanging arete in climbing, or the highest point on the ski hill. It also reflects the proud protruding entrance, which you can see in the design of Buffalo Mountain Lodge’s buildings.”, O’Connor explains.
The Prow is expected to open its doors in June 2021.
