Anyone else been to the new Wildflower Grill in Edmonton?

Hi all,

I was at the new Wildflower Grill recently. It's the new restaurant in the newly re-opened / re-branded Matrix Hotel (formerly Inn on 7th) across from Il Portico in Edmonton. I had a fairly good experience, though I'm not sure about the logic of the incredibly over-sized plates dotted with the radically small portions. I had the "hot vichysoisse" with butternut squash. It was a nice, velvety potato soup. It was about 4 spoonfuls. What can I say?! Then I had the tomato and buffalo mozzerella salad, which unfortunately lacked ripe tomatoes! My friend, however, had the squash ravioli and asparagus, and it was very good. We were both taken with the lovely roasted/grilled squash that was finely sliced lengthwise and twirled into a flower. It sounds hokey as I write it, but it was a lovely garnish and vegetable. The bill for lunch was kind of steep $25 per person before tip for two courses, no booze. Loved the cutlery and the prompt lunch service though.

Has anyone else been here? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Frankly, I was too wrapped up in visiting with my friend to be paying too close attention to the details.
