In May 2018 the Grande Rockies Resort reinvigorated their dining venue with The Grande Kitchen + Bar. They have brought in Waymarker Executive Chef, Air Bouphasiry, known for his Infusion restaurant in Bragg Creek and in Calgary, to bring in a new and inspired menu. Bouphasiry’s training in classical Italian and French cooking is influenced by his upbringing in Laos and the menu reflects his interests with a fusion of traditional western dishes accented with eastern flare. Chef Air has spent thirty five years in the hospitality industry starting when he was 19 years old. Since then he has gotten his wife and kids into the business of running restaurants. The Grande is another family venture with Air and Nok, his wife, working in the kitchen and his daughter Cristina managing the service end of the restaurant.


Right off the main lobby, the Grande Kitchen + Bar is a very modern space with stylish Edison Bulb light fixtures, comfy wrap around booths and glass display cases for wines. The kitchen is right near the entrance and is open to view, allowing you a chance to see the chefs in action. The serving staff are very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The restaurant is available for group bookings and a kids menu is also available. For larger groups the hotel is equipped with banquet and conference facilities. The catering for the hotel is also done by The Grande Kitchen + Bar.
