An unassuming and deeply authentic restaurant that serves creative Canadian food. Dining here feels like a stroll through chef Justin Cournoyer’s world. Actinolite is the name of the town where he grew up and where he discovered foraging. The passionate chef personally explains the concept behind each dish tableside and even lives above the restaurant. Tasting menus reflect the strong relationships forged with Canadian suppliers and a deep respect for the seasons. Venison carpaccio is scattered with jewel-like juniper berries, while halibut cheek swims in a puddle of white spruce broth.
