Coming in August: CRMR at Home (Calgary)

Looks like CRMR is opening a catering business/food shop next to Cilantro in August. definitely worth a look... especially with our upcoming move out of town. :)

  1. Very interesting. A great company.

    1. Great news! would love to get some of their elk ham.

      1. This was The Point tavern? If so, major upgrade! It has had a building permit posted for maybe 2 years now. Great to see.

        1. Was very glad to get this email yesterday from Rocky Mountain myself! I can't wait!

          1. According to a bit in Friday's Swerve CRMR at home is open now. Any news? Wondering if its worth the drive.

              It is open and up and running and quite well stocked. The day I went I picked up some mushroom soup - a bit too peppery for my taste, and some peanut butter cookies - just because they were fresh baked and the place smelled of cookies. Yummy! They carry a lot of the same pantry products that you can find at Bite and some enticing treats too! They are within walking distance for me so I am pleased - especially as parking is an issue. I picked up a jar of melon/mustard and it is amazing. I had tried it at Buffalo Mountain Lodge and am very pleased that I can now buy it a bit closer to home. I am looking forward to trying some more of their specialty items - Cilantro pizza, stock, bison, cheesecake etc.

                Sounds great higgika. I'll have to bring the cooler and stock up. There's a bison store in Red Deer but as far as I can tell nothing like Bite or CRMR at home.

                Thanks for the info. I haven't seen you around here in awhile(maybe I missed your posts but it seems like months?) - glad to know you're still around. :)

                  It has been quite a while. I golf in the summer and I am obsessed. Thanks for noticing. It makes me feel appreciated :) Had dinner at the Ranche - part of CRMR group - and have to post as it was so much better than I had expected.

                  I popped in last week and was really pleased with the space and the pantry items. I spoke with the manager and asked alot about the wild game they farm and there practises etc. I was really thrilled to see frozen pear and stilton pizza's! mmm and fresh pasta that looked nice too.

                  JM > the space is actually the other side of Cilantro within a larger building (apt or an office tower) It would be nice is they sold wine here too!

                    BIN 905 is just a couple of blocks away and I believe belongs to the same group.

                      I just got an email back from the manager - I had written to ask about a product list, parking etc. There are apparently two spaces out front and space in the Cilantro lot(I imagine they mean after lunch/before the dinner rush). She also mentioned they have baguette fresh daily from their bakery in Canmore. I asked about the soups and there'll be regulars and seasonal ones once they figure out what's popular. Their website is still in development and they'll eventually get more product info up soon.
