Banff dining is more than just hiker food. Sushi and foie gras have long embellished the restaurants of Banff Ave, and some of the more elegant places will inspire grubby hikers to return to their hotel rooms and take a shower before pulling up a chair. Many of Banff's hotels also have their own excellent on-site restaurants, which welcome nonguests. AAA Alberta beef makes an appearance on even the most exotic à la carte menu.
