Shift Restaurant is locally owned and operated. Located at the new Remai Modern museum of modern and contemporary art, Shift is a Canadian-inspired restaurant that tells the stories of our country’s past, present and future through imaginative food.

They strive to create a connection between food and place through genuine, contemporary cooking rooted in Canada’s ever-evolving culture and flavours. The menu celebrates Canadian culture, while also highlighting familiar dishes of the Prairies.

Shift also aims to showcase the land, as well as our farmers and other producers, through the use of homegrown ingredients wherever possible. Strongly influenced by seasonal shifts, chefs frequently change their menus to highlight the unique conditions and bounties each season brings.
