Ranked #5 of the Best Restaurants in Regina on 10Best, Memories Fine Dining & Lounge treats patrons to an overflowing menu of French and continental cuisine amid elegant dining ambience. Evenings simmering in Memories' flattering light ignite with an appetizer of escargot marinated in champagne and brandy ($9). Due to its light flavour profile of oregano, lemon, and garlic—and its knowledge of the '89 Saskatoon Blades' covers album—the rack of lamb has remained a house favourite for 22 years ($35). Diners may also swallow whole a serving of dijon- and honey-basted pork chops ($26) or a 6-ounce steak filet sandwich served with mushrooms on focaccia garlic bread ($25). Memories’ chameleon-like wine list changes regularly to pair with its seasonal offerings.
With its precocious lunch menu, Memories is often patronized by such luminaries as Regina's business elite and the inventor of Lite-Brite's incandescent outline. Velvety butternut squash or pea soup ($5) pair attractively with the tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, and feta cheese mingling in the village greek salad ($9). For a hearty midday fix, the chicken souvlaki wrap arrives in tandem with a choice of homemade fries or mixed greens ($10), and shrimp, pesto, and parmesan-cheese pizza makes for an ideal disk to devour without first baiting a line ($14).
