Dishing out family fare

SYLVAN LAKE — The eating options here should soon increase with the opening of a new restaurant in Lakeway Landing.

Workers frame the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room in a new Sylvan Lake restaurant Wednesday.

SYLVAN LAKE — The eating options here should soon increase with the opening of a new restaurant in Lakeway Landing.

Sam Parmar has obtained a development permit for a licensed family restaurant at 117 Lakeway Boulevard. The business will be in the same commercial centre as Lakeway Liquor and Winks Esso.

Parmar said he plans to open by the end of June. He is currently working on the restaurant’s menu, and is seeking suggestions from town residents.

He said he wants to develop a reputation for quality food, and hopes to build a year-round clientele rather than rely on summer tourists.

“We’re not on the main street, we’re not close to the lake,” said Parmar. “This is mostly for the neighbourhood and local people.”

The restaurant will have seating for 54. It will open at 10 a.m. seven days a week, and close at 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and at midnight Friday and Satruday.

Parmar, who owns the commercial centre, opened Winks Esso last fall and Lakeway Liquor in April. He said he felt there was a need for a neighbourhood dining spot, particularly during warmer weather when the lakefront restaurants are busy.

Parmar also owns the Mac’s Convenience Store in Sylvan Lake.
