"Artful, delicious dining at Creations - The Paint is barely dry and the buzz is on for the eclectic Canadian fusion cuisine of Creations, the stunning new dining room and lounge in the atrium of the Sawridge Inn Edmonton South. Walls of fire, water and badlands hoodoos and a huge dreamcatcher treat the senses as the menu items."
