You need to meet a client for a drink, but you want to go somewhere that you can linger for a while without pressure. Look no further than Thomsons Restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Calgary. Thomsons Restaurant offers a tantalizing array of dishes no matter what time of day. The restaurant starts welcoming hungry guests at 6:30am and serves up breakfast classics such as pancakes, Eggs Benedict and the irresistible Sticky-Bun French toast as well as their signature specialties. The lunch menu features Japanese and Mexican inspired food as well as lunch standards. Whether you’re in the mood for a quick bite, or a more substantial meal, Thomsons Restaurant has something to offer everyone. With comfortable chairs and helpful staff, you can stay as long as you like.
Thomsons makes sure to include local ingredients on their menu that would make any Calgary native proud by dishing up Grilled Alberta Beef Salad, Grilled Alberta Striploin Sandwich, and the Angus Burger which, of course, features none other than Alberta beef. The local focus continues long into the night, as does Thomsons dinner and lounge menu. The dinner menu features a wide array of locally raised meat. If red meat doesn’t tickle your fancy, there’s always the Herb Roasted Air Chilled Naturally Raised Chicken, or Seared Noble Farms Duck Breast. For meat from outside of Calgary, there’s the “Sous Vide” East Coast Lobster and the Crisp BC Salmon Loin. Diners will enjoy the fact that all of Thomsons’ dinner seafood dishes are recommended by the Vancouver Aquarium as sustainable seafood choices.
If hammering out that deal with your client stretches late into the night, the lounge menu serves up one of the best plates of nachos in the city. When the deal is done, celebrate with one of the offerings from Thomsons Restaurant’s drink menu. For those particularly cool nights, the Lafortune’s Hot Chocolate is a top pick with Baileys, Dark Crème de Cacao, heated chocolate milk, whipped cream and crushed M&M’s.
