A city landmark and iconic restaurant location will be opening its doors once again after a four-year hiatus.
Restaurateur Noel Bernier, who owns Hermanos Steakhouse and Wine Bar and Corrientes Argentine Pizzeria, will be finalizing negotiations to reopen the revolving restaurant at the Fort Garry Place later this month. The restaurant is set to open in October 2013.
"It’s just really exciting. It’s a blessing to be able to reopen this space to the city," Bernier said.
Prairie 360 will take on a local, Manitoba-grown food concept, he said, offering a taste of the best Manitoba has to offer.
Ace Burpee and Chrissy Troy of Virgin 103 will be participating in a web-based series with the executive chef of Prairie 360 this summer to cultivate culinary inspiration for the restaurant.
"They’ll go to farms, Lake Winnipeg fishing, just really explore the root of what is our food and what kind of food do we have in Manitoba," he said.
The space has been closed since 2008. It has previously been home to the Royal Crown Revolving Restaurant, operated by the Gill Family Trust.
