In the same manner that the Canadian Museum for Human Rights elevates our city to a national (even international) tourism level, Era Bistro elevates the museum to even higher heights. I have had the pleasure of noshing at the at the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Musee D’Orsay in Paris, The Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem and more recently the Ufizzi Gallery in Florence. All were tasty enough but none had the integrity of local produce and regional menu as Era does.

I have met both the director of food and beverage and the executive chef at Era Bistro. The former, named Toni, is gluten intolerant and strives to give persons with this, vegan and vegetarian preferences plenty of menu choices. On the lunch menu alone there were nine delicious options. I enjoyed the gluten free Quinoa Salad on my visit.

WINNIPEG – The young men and women in the photograph are smiling broadly. Some are laughing. One is playing an accordion. They’re clearly having a great time.

The dozen people looking toward the camera could be any group of people having boisterous fun. But their uniforms convey a darker truth — they are Nazi soldiers and support staff from the Auschwitz concentration camp.
