Enjoy the Prairie Bistro (CLOSED)

Potato, dill and leak soup
The humans decided that they needed to find a way to make it to Prairie Bistro at The Enjoy Centre in St Albert. So one sunny this past fall, we paid a visit and are glad we did. Although located quite a ways from Edmonton, this restaurant is in a beautiful space. Large, spacious, open, and bright the dining room is a sight of it's own.We were there right when they opened for lunch and although their menu is small, all of the items looked enticing.

Ricotta and goat cheese crepe
The salad of the day consisted of braised kale, cannellini beans,  roasted tomato with a herb dressing. The roasted tomatoes were mildly sweet, balanced by the cool beans and perfectly complimented by a slightly herby dressing.

The soup of the day was potato, dill and leak, a wonderful mix of textures. Creamy and rich, punctuated with bits of crunchy onions and celery. Finishing with a nice punch of dill, this soup warms you up and sticks to your ribs.

Hummus and spinach artichoke dip
The ricotta and goat cheese crepe was extremely satisfying. Caressed by a herb tomato sauce, arugula pesto, artichokes and roasted vegetables, it balanced the saltiness of the creamy ricotta and goat cheese filling found within the fluffy crepe.

My favorite was the hummus and spinach artichoke dip served with organic focaccia crackers. The thick and garlicky dip atop the crispy crostini made you yearn for more. I had to resist the urge to pick up the bowl and shove my face in it to get every last drop.

I look forward to returning and trying out their dinner menu, and seeing the beautiful space in the evening light.
