Brunch in the Park: Square One Wye RoadFebruary 01, 2014
Sherwood Park isn't always a place I like to venture out to. As I live deep in the south of Edmonton, I'll venture out to the park just for Sumo Sumo's sushi. Mmm. But last month a new restaurant opened up in Sherwood Park that offered "meticulously casual" cuisine in a "contemporary speakeasy" environment. The description was confusing but I was definitely curious to say the least.
Square One Wye Road - #32 993 Fir Street - Sherwood Park AB
Square One has taken over the old Rogers Video space and the renovations are beautiful. Big windows allow for lots of natural light to stream into the restaurant to brighten up the space filled with wooden decor. A large bar outfitted with colourful bar stools sits in the middle of the dining room, and what really caught my attention was the beautiful baroque ballroom-esque ceiling over the bar. The space is a mix of cosy and casual, but likely has a more upscale feel in the evenings.
