Best Eats in Banff: The Bison, all organic/free range fare, with a detailed description of their suppliers. Recently expanded (2010), I recommend sticking with the downstairs. Better menu, prices and social ambience. Maybe retire to the bar upstairs for sunset or late night. Bison chili is amazing!
Makes the 10 best eats for traveling the world for list, and I tend to agree. Knew of the owner/chef from the start. He has stuck to his values.

You hanging around drinking or getting up some peaks? (it is called the Grizzly Paw, not the Bear Claw, and he has been making beer for a long time and will have a new brewery location open this time next year)
Ironic...Barry was run up a tree by a grizzly for 3.5hrs the day I told you I personally do not carry bear spray...he doesn't (did not) either. Most of the time the client seems to be carrying it anyway, his client this day only had a whistle. Of course the question in this case, would spray have just gotten one in even more trouble? It is not a cure all by any stretch.
Unfortunately, against Barry's wishes and mine, the bear was destroyed...for being a bear. The confrontation makes for a harrowing story. You can google it or read about it in the local papers.
