CHOP steak, fish & bar brings one of Canada's Top Ten new restaurants to Winnipeg

    Menu goes beyond the usual steakhouse and starts from scratch - every day

    WINNIPEG, Sept. 9 /CNW/ - CHOP steak, fish & bar is proud to announce its
grand opening in Winnipeg, following on the heels of its success in Edmonton.
Named one of Canada's Top Ten New Restaurants for 2007 by the editors of Where
magazine, Chop will significantly ramp up Winnipeg's thriving culinary scene
with a unique food concept and complementary design aesthetic.
    Chop is a contemporary steakhouse. Chop fuses the elements discerning
guests enjoy about fine dining - a focus on exceptional food, a notable wine
list, quality spirits and excellent service, combined with the energy level
and value of casual dining.
    "We take our commitment to creating quality, hand made dishes to another
level. Our guests will taste the difference in every course - from our
selection of artesian breads, prepared daily by our baker, or our steaks hand
cut on-site from Certified Angus Alberta Beef, to our desserts crafted
in-house by our pastry chefs," says Regional Chef Jason Kaytor.
    Lunch and dinner menu selections showcase classic preparations and
inspired creations. Chop's commitment to innovation and creativity dictate
that all items are prepared from scratch on a daily basis. As part of Chop's
commitment to quality it features a custom designed oven for steaks that cooks
at 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Signature dishes include the stuffed gorgonzola
fillet, sushi-grade Ahi tuna pillars, citrus soy-glazed salmon, and other
classics such as the Angus Chop sirloin burger.
    "Chop redefines the dining experience - we've created fine casual dining,
with a resonating note of luxury," says Marcel Blais, vice president, Chop
Restaurants. "We know that how you eat is almost as important as what you eat
- and you can feel it in our ambience and décor, which is one of luxury
without pretense."
    The new over 200-seat restaurant has created more than 100 jobs for
Winnipeggers, and is located at 1750 Sargent Ave.
