This Salisbury House Restaurant built right on the Esplanade Riel, a bridge connecting the downtown area with the eastern suburb of St. Boniface, is a restaurant chain that is locally known as the “SALS”…
It frequently attracts visitors, young and old and is widely considered a Winnipeg landmark. The restaurant chain was initially founded in Downtown Winnipeg in 1931 by Ralph Erwin and was named for the Salisbury steak. Erwin, who disliked the name hamburger, named his burger a “NIP” (which he considered was a nip of Salisbury steak). There are now 20 Salisbury Houses in Winnipeg and the surrounding area.
They are owned by a group of local investors, among whom is the musician BURTON CUMMINGS (born December 31, 1947) is a Canadian musician and songwriter. A gifted showman, he was the lead singer for the Canadian rock band The Guess Who.
During his 10 years in The Guess Who, from 1965 to 1975, he sang and wrote or co-wrote many well known songs including “American Woman,” “No Time,” “Share the Land,” “Hand Me Down World,” “Undun,” “Laughing,” “No Sugar Tonight,” and “These Eyes.”
