Respond to Review of Nourish Bistro
Review: As two vegans who snowboard, my wife and I went to this restaurant in January 2009 after finding out about it on HappyCow. Many thanks to those who wrote positive reviews, as they were correct. The food was good, and the owners were very friendly. Heather and Mark both knew what was vegan and what was not vegan. They were very helpful. The prices were a bit steep, but considering there is no place in "beef country" like it, we did not mind paying a bit more. Heather snowboards and skis and she was very helpful in that regard as well. Norquay was good when there was fresh snow. Lake Louise and Sunshine Village were great as they had some challenging runs and decent snow. Anyone who does not like the place? Where else would you suggest vegans and vegetarians go in Banff? We tried an Indian restaurant and a Thai restaurant, but the smell of animal flesh near us was gross. We also overheard some "farmers" or "feed specialists" when we ate at the Thai restaurant. It was disgusting as they were talking about how to fatten pigs with special feed. When at Nourish we did not hear anything like that or smell anything like that. It was peaceful and we went there five times during a two-week 'boarding trip.
