Ayden Kitchen & Bar is one of the newest restaurants to open in downtown Saskatoon towards the end of 2013. It is owned by Dale MacKay, who won the title of Top Chef Canada and Nathan Guggenheimer, Executive Chef. We have not been there yet but found these awesome videos that they have produced to tell their story and will post here before we visit. We will come back with a review.

From their website (www.aydenkitchenandbar.com)

“Chef Dale MacKay and his executive team (Nathan Guggenheimer – Executive Chef and Butcher, Christopher Cho – General Manager and Mixologist, Jesse Zuber – Head Chef) create homegrown and globally inspired comfort food, along with properly hand-crafted cocktails in a relaxed and inviting setting that evokes rich dark woods and antique curiosities. Whether you’re going in for a full dining experience, an after-work cocktail, or a night-cap, Ayden Kitchen & Bar delivers you with warmth and comfort with each experience.”

You can view their menu right on their website.

They also have a market in house:

“The butchery provides a boutique-amount of quality in-house sausages, pate, aged cuts of meat, charcuterie and pre-cooked items such as duck confit for take-away. Aiming to work with Saskatoon-area local farmers, an assortment of specialty steaks and chops, fresh and in limited daily quantities. In step with the quality-over-quantity Ayden approach, carefully sourced steaks are expertly cut and meat sliced exactly to order.

What is better that enjoying a meal and having the ability to take home the same product and try to recreate the same dish for your family and friends. Like an old-school butcher shop, friendly service and counsel counts: walk in, know your butcher and they you, talk over meal options and get recipes and tips about preparation methods and cooking times. Shoppers leave confident about the meat and the meal ahead. The butcher shop and market will be open in January 2014.”
