CALGARY — Earlier this year, chef and restaurateur Vikram Vij announced his departure from the Dragon’s Den TV series, with plans to focus on his restaurants. Now the Vancouver-based celebrity chef is bringing his dishes to the Rundle Lounge at the Fairmont Banff Hot Springs hotel, reports The Straight.
Every year, the hotel converts its tea room to an Indian restaurant called Indian Summer for the season. Vij will be contributing two recipes to the menu: Family Chicken Curry served with basmati rice and naan and boneless goat curry with cassava root.
Vij also announced plans to open of a new concept in the South Granville location, which currently houses Vij’s Restaurant. The old restaurant is being relocated to Cambie Street. [straight.com]
