It encompasses everything we aim to achieve as leaders of the casual fine dining industry.”

The menu at Cactus Club Cafe Jasper Avenue is designed by Chef Rob Feenie, one of Canada’s most celebrated chefs and its first Iron Chef America champion.  Chef Feenie leads Cactus’ talented culinary team to create a menu which features exciting new dishes as well as classic offerings.

Guests can also enjoy Rob Feenie classic dishes including the tuna tataki, double-braised pineapple hoisin short rib and soy-dijon salmon.

The restaurant features 8,700 square feet of casually chic ambience, including original artwork by Tony Baker, an Edmonton artist, Graham Gillmore, Brent Comber and Andy Warhol including his ‘Wayne Gretzky #99’ original signed trial proofs.
