Visually, Copper Canyon is a big improvement over its predecessors—sleek and contemporary: a long, rectangular space with glassed-in private club at one end and a private dining room at the other. Still, there must be a flavor-extraction machine in the kitchen. How else to explain the palate-numbing blandness of the vegan sauté? A bone-in airline chicken breast—described as “free-range poulet rouge”—was more interesting, served with good parsnip-and-carrot-spiked mashed potatoes and natural jus. Copper Canyon features an “After 5 slow-cooked meat & potatoes” special which is said to be “braised all day and priced to sell out.” Daylong braising didn’t prevent the bison shortribs from coming to our table lukewarm, however.
