Although mountain men were adept at preparing wild game such as antelope and boar, their attempts at haute décor were dismal. Avoid unflattering earth tones and snagging your toe on a hidden stick with today's deal: for $20, you get $45 worth of Northwestern fare and drinks at Saskatoon's Buckhead location.
Featuring an outdoor patio and lodgelike interior, Saskatoon is a specialty chophouse that tames the wild outdoors, serving both exotic wild game and traditional entrees with a Northwestern flair. Following the rustic ritual, the Buckhead location's menu begins meals with appetizers such as the wild-game sausage sampler (different sampling of meats each week, $10), wild-boar flatbread ($9), and Northwestern steamers (fresh clams and mussels, $11). Venture further into the culinary mountains with entrees such as buffalo flank steak (served with caramelized onions and house honey-barbecue sauce, $23) and a full rack of lamb with zinfandel demi-glace ($32), or swim up a clear, cool flavor stream by opting for a rainbow trout, served sizzling in the pan ($19). Don't neglect your inner oenophile—Saskatoon has a wine list large enough to tickle any entree's fancy. A glass of Sea Ridge syrah ($6.50) or a Sterling sauvignon blanc ($6.50) will complement savory sustenance, and a sweet glass of Hungarian tokaji (dessert wine, $12) can put a delicious cap on your night's sleepy head.
Take a special someone to Saskatoon for a mountain-chic dining experience and express the feelings that only a hot, sizzling slab of meat can properly convey. Afterward, cozy up to the fire and enjoy Saskatoon's mountain-lodge atmosphere, guaranteed to be grizzly-bear free.
Valid for dine-in only.
Creative Loafing says of Saskatoon:
- Saskatoon's staff is terrific. The hostess is a gorgeous character who basically turns any area of the restaurant she occupies into a stage. A great experience. – Cliff Bostock
- They brought us several appetizers to sample, and I have to say – we all really enjoyed the food we tried. Of course, wild game was the main protein in each dish, and they were all very creative as well as delicious! – Lauren
- The menu itself offers a good selection of appetizers, a few choice salads and a handful of fish/seafood dishes, wild game dishes and "tame" game dishes if you will. There is something on this menu for everyone. – Robert S., Yelp
