Justin Benson is an Edmonton-based entrepreneur and restaurateur who has spent the last decade exploring culinary scenes across the globe. Justin takes inspiration from the world’s most innovative food scenes and injects them into some of Edmonton’s best restaurants as a marketing & design consultant. We caught up with him to see how he spends a weekend in our incredible city!

Day One

Stop 6 - The Metterra Hotel

10454 82 Ave

Hop in an Uber and head across the river for this classy & stylish place to lay your head. Located smack dab in the middle of Whyte Ave – you’ll be able to find some trouble if you decide the night isn’t over yet. I however prefer to fall asleep to the glow of a COPS marathon on their ensuite TVs.

Day Two

Edmonton is an amazing city with countless hidden gems. I encourage you to explore this vibrant metropolis on your own and shoot me a DM with your favourite spots, I’m always on the hunt for something new!
