New dome dining series in Edmonton highlights local culinary talent

The dome dining trend hits Edmonton

A unique new dining initiative kicked off in Edmonton last week, offering diners an immersive and intimate culinary experience provided by a collection of the city’s most acclaimed chefs. 

Taking place in the heart of Edmonton’s River Valley from March 4 to April 8, the Geoscapes dining series will feature a weekly selection of multi-course meals served inside of one of 15 heated luxury geodomes. 

Although the menus themselves are not being released until just prior to each dinner, Geoscapes has revealed the lineup of featured chefs: Shaun Hicks (Sugarbowl, March 11-14), Edgar Gutierrez (Kanto 98) with Ariel Del Rosario and Roel Canafranca (Filistix, March 18 -21), Lindsay Porter (The Common, March 25-28), Paul Shufelt (Workshop Eatery, April 1-4), and Shane Chartrand (Tawaw, April 8-11).

In addition to the weekly multi-course dinners, Geoscapes chefs have also collaborated to create a brunch menu that will be available on weekends throughout the series.

Diners will have their choice of either meat, vegetarian, or gluten-free options, along with optional upgrades that range from adding charcuterie and dessert to drink pairings as well as VIP staycation packages with event partner Matrix Hotel.

Geoscapes has ensured that all COVID-19 health and safety protocols have been met. As such, dining will be limited to households or designated close contacts. Reservations can be made online.
