Profile Last Updated: July 28, 2008
With a clientele base that goes from jeans to suits, and with customer testimonial that rates this restaurant as one of the top three in Edmonton, Murrieta’s offers up a fabulous menu of west coast cuisine and an even finer wine list made up of new-world wines from the Pacific Rim. Whether you’re starting the day with Murrieta’s famous Eggs Benedict, sampling the seafood dishes it’s known for (fresh oysters, fresh halibut, crab cakes), digging heartily into a steak that is never anything but Triple-A Alberta beef, or falling in love with the “Trio of Chocolate” dessert plate, Murrieta’s will have you challenging, tempting and surprising your taste buds over and over again.
Calling all Gastronomes and Gourmands
Priding itself on being a scratch kitchen – meaning everything (and I mean everything) on the menu is made from scratch – all sauces, breads, soups and more are made in-house by a team of passionate and dedicated chefs. Murrieta’s is a teaching kitchen that only hires those who are serious about making a career in the culinary arts. And, when it comes to the service on the floor, the staff of Murrieta’s is no less professional than the creators of the food they’re carrying. Management believes part of the experience of enjoying great food and wine is being in the know as to what you’re eating and drinking. All servers go through intense wine training and attend a wine seminar every week. They also sample the chef’s creations and the wine to be paired with them, so as to understand how to educate Murrieta’s patrons as to why one wine is better than another with a particular meal.
Attention Atmosphere Aficionados
Not only is there a fantastic menu and sharp servers at Murrieta’s, there is also an atmosphere not to be missed. A beautiful bar, a courtyard dining room with a 20-foot ceiling and 10-foot windows, a casual bistro area, a private dining room that seats about 30, and a patio that’s open in the warmer months make up the unique layout of Murrieta’s. On Friday and Saturday nights, patrons can also enjoy live piano entertainment until 10 pm (employed are four professional pianists whose performances rotate week to week). Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and with brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, Murrieta’s really does have it all – and it’s wrapped up in a delectable, delicious, sophisticated package that is just waiting to be unwrapped and savoured as every Edmontonian’s newest mistress.
