Canmore Girls Night : Fancy Dress Dinner
- CookieGal Apr 22, 2009 07:28 PM
Looking for a recommendation for a few ladies to enjoy an early dinner this Saturday prior to a Gala event.
My first thought was go back to Murietta's.. which I adore, but I wouldn't mind trying something new..Also I have been to Crazyweed and I don't think I would go back.
So other than those 2.. Any thoughts?
My current favorite here in snowy Canmore is Wild Orchid!!
Run by two well known faces from the Calgary scene..................
Witold Twardowski - Owner Creator

He was also instrumental in the total refurbishing and reopening of the world famous “Hotel California” in Baja California.
Tomo Mitsumo - Chef
Tomo has spent over half his life learning the intricate art of fine Japanese cuisine. Having studied and apprenticed in Osaka, Japan, Tomo came to Calgary in 2002 and has garnered a loyal following. His latest creation, “Blowfish” on 11th Avenue in downtown Calgary is considered one of the most progressive Sushi restaurants in Alberta. Tomo’s revered knowledge and old world training will help make Silver Creek Lodge, the place for unique Asian cuisine.
had fantastic meals at Quarry, definitely recommend. Have heard nothing but amazing reviews from The Trough, although I have not been there myself. I also really like Zona's. Also Sage is really great.
the thing with Canmore is that nothing is really dressy. but you should feel fine in any of those places.
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
We ended up at Murietta's after all. And it was lovely. Quarry was booked as it was after the big Womens Race.
Went to Sage for Brunch though! mmm :)
Although I must say... our dinner was not as wonderful as my past dinners their.
Not sure what is going on but the meal was just a little lack luster;
My duck was very medium, (not rare medium) missing one of the veg... dirty plates.
But all in all good company and a fun nigh. Next time I am out I will have to try yet again to go to Quarry & Trough!
