Owner Chris Fougere has a hand in every aspect of Fude Inspired Cuisine & Wine Bar—from personally interviewing the staff to coming up with names for each of the menu’s equally inventive dishes. A seasoned player in the restaurant industry, Chris uses every ounce of his creativity to create a truly inspired dining experience, saying, “Our goal, in no uncertain terms, is to wow our guests." The menu features culinary classics with a twist, such as free-range chicken skewers dunked into a dark-chocolate sauce or sushi-grade ahi tuna seared in locally roasted espresso. Nearly every dish highlights seasonal, Manitoba vegetables, meats, and seafood, backed by an assortment of vegan and gluten-free fare and tofu shadow puppets.
In addition to the dine-in experience, Fude offers lunch, dinner, and cocktail-party catering services ranging from appetizers only to four-course meals with wine parings. An extensive drink menu features classic and house-formulated martinis as well as Fude-exclusive house wines that are named by Chris himself.
