Shift Restaurant In Saskatoon
Located at Remai Modern museum of modern and contemporary art, Shift’s mission is to tell the stories of Canada’s past, present and future through inventive, regional cuisine.
Shift strives 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 our land, as well as our farmers and other producers, through the use of homegrown ingredients wherever possible. Strongly influenced by seasonal shifts, our chefs frequently change their menus to highlight the unique conditions and bounties each season brings.
