Canyon Café

The Frontenac location is No. 5 of 15 in a chain that started in 1986 in Dallas. "We've done more grilling and roasting since moving toward the more health-conscious consumer," says general manager Gerard LaRuffa. "People are ordering more salmon," he says, particularly the new applewood-smoked salmon with cilantro oil and payaya serrano chili sauce with roasted butternut squash and sautéed garlic spinach He also recommends the grilled-vegetable paella with grilled asparagus, zucchini, black beans and corn.
